Why is trackingco.de so good?
It is a fair question to raise -- not in the way it is formulated, assuming our service is actually good, but more in the likes of why isn't any other service that provides all you do for such a small price?
Well, there could be tons of web analytics as a service out there, as there are tons of services for many common tasks people of the internet face, most of them are free or have a free tier, and many of them very good. For web analytics, however, this is not so easy. Web analytics requires at least a database that takes lots of disk space. These things are not as cheap as a normal webserver with a database of only a handful items for each person using the app.... More Info »
trackingco.de does nothing too different here. It only stores the data in a compacted format, but yet in a database from where it can be indexed and served. That seems to work very well, and we found a solution that allows us to offer some advanced features, but still not take too much disk space. Of course, we're still unable to offer some of the fancy features some of our competitors do, but most web analytics users aren't going to need those anyway.
Which features are missing?
Although trackingco.de is great, it is not the not the definitive web analytics tool that will solve all the problems. If you're relying on
* geolocation (tagging visitors by country, city etc.);
* browser or operating system usage statistics;
* screen sizes measurements;
* very specific conversion/goal tracking; or
* A/B testing (split-tests)
Then you probably shouldn't use our services.
