Privacy–first web analytics software that cannot be tracked or blocked.
How do most web analytics work?
This works just fine unless you want to:
- Share nothing with third–parties;
- Leave no cookies;
- Track visitors that block ads and trackers;
- Tell no one that you track them.
How is Log Analytics different?
The key difference is that Log Analytics works with the log files your web–server makes when it serves your visitors. These files are created automatically and you most likely already have them anyway.
Best of all, no data leaves your servers — all the processing is done on–premises!
What are the cons?
Basically, it all comes to the privacy and sharing the data. If you are fine about sharing your visitors’ details with a third–party and leaving cookies around — you’d probably better to consider the standard web analytics solution. There are plenty of them around, many are free and do the job pretty well.
However, if you value your users privacy, if you don’t want to share their information with anyone else, if you don’t want placing cookies — you’re at the right place!
Log Analytics supports most of the popular reports you might expect from the web analytics software:
- Location reports — where do your visitors come from?
- New vs Returning — how many visitors return to your website?
- Acquisition Channels — organic, direct, social, ads and other ways the visitors come to your website;
- Campaign tracking — see each campaign results and performance!
- Landing and Exit pages — where do you visitors come and where do they leave?
- Bounce rate — see which visitors leave immediately;
- Session duration — how long the visitors stay on your website;
- …and many more.
We are working on adding goals and events to our reports and also tracking of redirects and missing pages, so you can have a better idea of what is going on with the website.
