  • Piwik: A perfect alternative to Google Analytics.

    Piwik Use Cases and Deployment ScopePiwik was chosen after a move off of Google services was started.  It was used to manage site metrics for all of our client sites.

    Pros : Community edition available for no chargeLDAP module available

    Cons : User Interface could be cleaned up a little. It can be difficult to navigate between monitored sites.

    Own Your Data, Know Your Users and Protect Their Privacy with Piwik

    Piwik Use Cases and Deployment ScopePiwik allows us to have control over our own data instead of using a third party service to handle it for us. With it, we can access the raw analytics data if we want or write new modules to present the data in a new way. Piwik truly gives you full control and it's easy to implement.

    Pros : You own your data.You are in full control of how you want your data presented.You show respect for your users privacy

    Cons : Missing A/B testing.Missing insights into data.Better real-time reporting.

    Piwik Analytics for those who know

    Piwik Use Cases and Deployment ScopeWe use Piwik as an alternative to Google Analytics for our clients who want to track their web site statistics and would rather not have their data hosted by Google. In addition, we use it to track our own website's data.

    Pros : Multiple sites can be easily configured and tracked in one central dashboard.There is more than one way to track the site visits - javascript is not necessary (but is of course the easiest way to track)With the new version 2.0, various reports can be 'widgetized' and embedded in other web pages that are not necessarily part of the main Piwik domain (i.e. you can embed live reports in a client's intranet)

    Cons : Initial setup is simple, but you'll need to know something about your server environment.Importing raw data from server logs is not trivial, and takes a bit of work to get right.

  • Easy to use analytics features for web professionals

    Piwik is already a popular application, but some businesses need a more customized solution. For those businesses, Piwik PRO might be a great way to introduce personalized features. However, for sites that don´?¢t need a custom solution, the free version offers everything they´?¢d get in the PRO version.

    Pros : Easy to use, customized features

    Cons : Free version offers good enough features without the price

  • The Piwik website analytics tool is very informative and is comparable to some of the larger names in data collection. The tool itself is easy to install and is free to use. Given the tools ability to customize the dashboard, users can instantly provide themselves with the information they want right upon logging in. For a free solution that provides an incredible amount of detail in visitor statistics, Piwik may be worth your time to explore.

  • The good news is that if you’re looking for a free, open and self-contained analytics system for your (or your client’s) website, you’ve come to the right place with Piwik. One of the problems with hosted web apps is that unless a significant feature is released, you’re never fully sure whether it’s being regularly maintained and updated to ensure security for both your data and that of other users. However, due to the nature of Piwik and other open source projects, you can be sure that any security issues are addressed fairly quickly. This means that it can be a very reliable tool for the job, especially if you’re looking at using it in a production environment.

  • What do you like best?

    I think what I like best about Piwik is the choice to use either a JS tracker or pixel tracker. The pixel tracker comes in handy if you want to track things like Craig's List posts or emails.

    What do you dislike?

    How difficult it is to setup and maintain. I work with Wordpress pretty heavily so I'm not uncomfortable around a database and server and Piwik was somewhat difficult to get going and update.

    What do you like best?

    Free analytic tool with a lot of features such as visitor reports, keyword, marketing reporting, and a lot more. You obviously use your own data and the tool is also open source. Can schedule automatic reports.

    What do you dislike?

    Possible security issues but Piwik offers rewards to researchers that find the bugs and disclose them to Piwik.
