Tracking page hits via URL ids per account login with ColdFusion 10

I need the ability to track which types of utilities and reports are used the most and least on my site. It's a specific section of my site, not the whole site and these are usually through the main subfolder under www.domain.com/reports/.

The different type of reports are all visible through the URL, here is an example of what an account under 123 ID would pull up based on a specific report

https://www.domain.com/reports/abcreport.cfm?mainaction=formpage&accountid=2523300&customer=ABC%20INC%2E%20CONSOLIDATED&matrixnumber=1621&reporttype=DEP

Essentially I want to be able to access how many times each account accessed their report, how many times a particular report was accessed and which types exactly. Would it be easier to use google analytics to track usage on each type of report or would it be better if I did it off of ColdFusion? What I'm looking for is advice on the best approach to handle this to get the type of data I want in the least time possible in terms of implementation and most accurate.
