Prerequisites and technical requirements:

Running Matomo Analytics on your server can use significant resources. Whenever someone visits your WordPress website, your server will need to serve your WordPress pages to the user, as well as tracking the user journey in Matomo, resulting in an additional request for each page view.

Over 1 million websites in over 190 countries are using Matomo already. Join the revolution too! Install Matomo on your WordPress website completely free and take back full control of your data!

Third party resources we use:

  • After activating this plugin, it will download a Geolocation database (DBIP-City.mmdb) from DB IP into your uploads directory. The DB-IP database is distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License. This database is needed to detect the location of your visitors based on their IP.
  • When you enter a URL in the SEO ranking widget, then a request with the entered URL may be sent to Google, Alexa, Bing, and other SEO providers.

Great thing! I tried this as an alternative to GA a while ago, and since then I’ve been using only this analytics for all my clients. 1. it’s open source, loads from your server and stores data in your database2. it loads faster than GA, and unlike GA isn’t locked by Firefox, Brave, and others (due to the first fact, that it’s loaded from your website)3. it has great UI and UXThe available reports in times better than the crappy GA reports, and built-in Woo tracking that works out-of-the-box is a very nice thing.I had a small thing to figure out, and contacted the support here, in the wp.org forum. The reply was instant. 5+ and highly recommend it to everybody!

An excellent free tool for tracking cookieless analytics, however not the most intuitive. My plugin collects links twice each time, plus appears to split the same user into different sessions, so not the most accurate. If you’re not a paid user, there’s no support other than a voluntary forum, where lots of answers go unreplied. To be honest that seems fair for a free tool, but it does mean parts of the plugin remain a mystery. That said, I’ve been able to set-up and track tags, just as with GA, by following the tutorials on the developer’s site. My WordPress dashboard has displayed Matomo diagnostics warnings since installation about charset and logs which I’ve never been able to fix, so getting a seamless experience may also depend on your hosting.
