Hello,
I don’t know about Matomo. After your question, I was searched about Matomo. But that is in brief, I think this is an analytic tool. Could you please explain about Matomo and why are using Matomo?

#Dilan Yes, I heard about the Matomo tool. this is the open analytics platform like Google analytic. and earlier it’s called “Piwik”.

Still, I’m using the google analytics for the analysis of the website traffic.

Almost, both tools are having the same features. according to my both tools comparison, I couldn’t see the filter options on the Matomo tool. but GA has the filter option.

If Matomo has this option, please explain here how to filter the spam clicks through Matomo.

Actually Thusha, Matamo doesn’t have the filter option like GA. Because The Matomo is using javascript tracker so this is automatically only recording the “Real” human activities and avoiding all bot activities. Therefore, you can get the more accurate report. In GA you have the filter options to filter the real and spam traffics. Check the following link and  get more info.

Not only this benefit, but there are also more features in this Matomo when we comparing the other analytics tools. For an example, the plugins, tracking ways, Goal settings and the main advantage is “control”, yes we can control it from our self, unlike the remote analytics softwares.

Hello Dilan,

In my past experienced I used to analyze the traffic through GA. Still, I’m using it. it has a lot of features and option to get the metrics. From here, we have four ways to tracking the goals:

  • URL Destination Goals
  • Visit Duration Goals
  • Pages/Visit Goals
  • Event Goals


Is the Matomo having the same kind of Goals setting? or anything new? How Can I define and track Goal conversions? If you can explain it briefly, it will really helpful for my projects.

Nearly both tools having the same features on the goal settings. But we can add the unlimited number of goals to track in Matomo tool. Example, E-commerce tracking, newsletter subscriptions, product, contact us, conversation tracking and etc…comparing the goal tracking process with GA, Matomo is easy to set our Goals. Meantime, They are providing the special reporting for the E-commerce shops. Yes, If you use the most popular eCommerce platform such as Magento, Zen Cart, OSCommerce and etc. The Matomo provided the eCommerce analytics features for these sites users. Already the team created the plugins for these platforms. Therefore, easily you can install and it’s automatically tracking your pages. So the eCommerce websites/owners have this special feature when they use the Matomo tool.

Hi @Dilan

Which analytics tool is the best Google Analytics or Matomo?

I suggest the website best analytics tool is google analytics because of more than most people using this tool and I read some blogs. because some features are missing in matomo tool. do you have any idea?

Admin

I can’t say which one is the best one. Because every tool has the features & benefits based on their customer’s demands and the current trending methods. Comparing the Google Analytics and Matomo you can see only 5% discrepancies.  Can you please list out the missing features that you have identified from Matomo tool?

Hi,
1st time I checked Piwik vs Google analytic. That time I could see some missing factors on piwik. After your presentation, I understood the difference between Matomo and Google Analytics.

Hello

Yes, this is one of the web analytics tool and it provides the detailed report about your website and helps to gather & analyse the information about your visitors such as conversation rates, Goals tracks, search engine and keywords and etc…I hope, You know there are many web analytics tools in online but we are using some of them from there. For example, Google Analytics, Woopra, Kissmetrics, Webtrends and etc..The Matomo tool also included in this category. Earlier this tool called as “Piwik” but not it’s called “Matomo”.

Why the peoples are loving this tool?
Actually, this tool is leading open source web analytics software. It’s running our server, not the remotely hosted services like Google Analytics, Adobe analytics and etc..at the same time it’s running in your server so you can fully control your data.

Matomo having some features apart from other tools (Not much more) and also they are giving the full-time support.

Based on their benefits and features, now more than one million websites in 200 countries using this software. Please visit their FAQ section and you will get more information about this tool.
