Choosing my web analytics platform



It is always interesting to see what are the topics that others like to hear from me. A web analytics platform allows for me to look at which pages are more often visited. There are many web analytics tools that site owners can use. In fact, the most popular one that most people would know would be Google Analytics and it is free to use.

You would have other paid tools

  • HubSpot
  • Mixpanel
  • Woopra
  • FoxMetrics
  • Piwik PRO Analytics Suite
  • Gauges
  • W3counter
  • Clicky
  • Matomo Analytics
  • Heap
  • Chartbeat
  • Microanalytics

But i would prefer to use a self hosted or open source solution. Have tried both Matomo and Plausible Analytics and decided to go with Matomo for the following reasons.
