Much needed open-source analytics

about Matomo · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I recently moved a bunch of my sites from Google Analytics to self-hosted Piwik and it has been a smooth ride. Piwik is a much needed open-source alternative where you are in full control of the data (especially if you go the self-hosted route). The options for respecting the privacy of your visitors by honoring Do-Not-Track requests and masking IP addresses are great!

I just found out about Piwik and I'm disappointed that I didn't know about it sooner - all that time I wasted using Google Analytics when I could have been using this great, open source, free, self-hosted alternative. I was actually so happy upon finding out about it that I wrote a blog post on it, if you want to read a more in-depth discussion of why I was so happy with it. Give Piwik a try - I'm telling you, you'll never want to use Google Analytics again.
