Independent Analytics – Google Analytics Alternative for WordPress

Independent Analytics – Google Analytics Alternative for WordPress

Beschreibung

Independent Analytics ist ein DSGVO-freundliches Plugin für die Website-Analyse, das exklusiv für WordPress entwickelt wurde. Probiere es aus, wenn du bereit für eine Alternative zu Google Analytics bist.

Dieses Plugin ist kostenlos und erfordert nicht, dass du ein Konto auf einer anderen Website anlegst. Alle unten beschriebenen Funktionen sind in dem kostenlosen Plugin enthalten.

Wesentliche Funktionen:

  • Analyse-Dashboard in deiner WP-Admin-Oberfläche
  • Anzeige deiner beliebtesten Beiträge und Seiten
  • Auflistung der wichtigsten Quellen deines Verkehrs
  • Geodaten mit interaktiver Weltkarte
  • Bericht über Endgeräte Typen, Browser und Betriebssysteme
  • Praktisch keine negativen Auswirkungen auf die Leistung
  • DSGVO-konform

PRO-Version jetzt verfügbar
Independent Analytics Pro fügt Kampagnen-URLs, Echtzeit-Analysen, WooCommerce-Integration und E-Mail-Berichte hinzu. Es ist für eine begrenzte Zeit 45% günstiger.

Schönes und anpassbares Dashboard

Independent Analytics fügt deiner WP-Admin-Oberfläche ein voll ausgestattetes Analyse-Dashboard hinzu. Das Analyse-Dashboard zeigt dir:

  • Quick-Statistiken zeigt die Gesamtzahl der Aufrufe und Besucher
  • Ein visuelles Diagramm zeigt dir den Verkehr für jeden Tag
  • Die Datentabelle enthält jede besuchte Seite

Du kannst deine Daten auch nach jeder beliebigen Spalte sortieren und filtern, z. B. nach dem Seitentyp, dem Autor, dem Veröffentlichungsdatum, dem Titel und mehr.

Das EINZIGE Analysetool mit vollständiger WordPress-Integration

Independent Analytics unterscheidet sich von Google Analytics und anderen WordPress-Analyse-Plugins.

Andere Tools zeigen dir eine Liste von URLs zusammen mit ihren Metriken. Independent Analytics kann dir den Titel jeder Seite, den Seitentyp, den Autor, das Veröffentlichungsdatum, die Kategorien und vieles mehr anzeigen, und das alles zusammen mit Metriken wie Aufrufen und Besuchern.

Wir nennen es ein Seitenbasiertes Analysewerkzeug.

Kein Kopieren und Einfügen von Tracking-Codes mehr

Installiere einfach das Plugin, und das Tracking beginnt sofort. Du musst dich nicht mit Tracking-Codes herumschlagen, das Head-Element deiner Website bearbeiten oder anderswo ein Konto anlegen.

DSGVO-konform

Independent Analytics ist von sich aus DSGVO-konform. Das ist es, was es datenschutzfreundlich macht:

  • Es werden keine Cookies verwendet
  • Es werden keine personenbezogenen Informationen gespeichert
  • Alle Daten werden auf deinem Server erstellt und gespeichert

Da Independent Analytics das Tracking ohne Cookies durchführt, musst du deiner Website kein Cookie-Pop-up hinzufügen.

Wichtigste Verkehrs-Quellen

Finde mit dem Referrer-Bericht heraus, woher die Besucher deiner Website kommen. Er zeigt dir:

  • Jede Website, von der du einen Besucher erhalten hast
  • Automatische Erkennung beliebter Suchmaschinen und Websites sozialer Netzwerke
  • Filtere und sortiere die Referrer nach Belieben.

Anhand der Verkehrs-Analysen wirst du schnell herausfinden, welche Marketing-Taktiken funktionieren und welche nicht.

Geolokalisierungsbericht

Finde mit dem Geolokations-Dashboard heraus, wo sich deine Besucher befinden. Es enthält für jeden Besucher folgenden Daten:

  • Kontinent
  • Land
  • Bezirk/Region
  • Stadt

Wie bei anderen Berichten kannst du einen individuellen Datumsbereich festlegen und die Ergebnisse sortieren und filtern.

Datenportabilität

Als WordPress-Analyse-Plugin werden deine Daten vollständig auf deinen Servern gesammelt und gespeichert. Das bedeutet, du kannst:

  • Sichere deine Analysen jedes Mal, wenn du ein Backup deiner Website machst
  • Übertrage deine Analysen auf eine beliebige Domain
  • Exportiere deine Daten in das CSV-Format, wann immer du magst

Im Gegensatz zu anderen Analyselösungen, die deine URLs verwenden, verfolgt Independent Analytics deine Seiten. Wenn du also auf eine neue Domain umziehst, wirst du keinen Unterschied in deinen Analysen feststellen – die URLs werden automatisch an die neue Domain angepasst.

Für wen eignet es sich?

Independent Analytics ist so einfach, dass es auch von Anfängern benutzt werden kann, und bietet dennoch Werkzeuge für eine tiefgehende Datenanalyse einer jeden WordPress-Website.

  • Blogger: Verwende Independent Analytics als einfaches Blog-Statistik-Plugin. Finde heraus, wie viele Aufrufe deine Beiträge erhalten und wie viel Traffic du über Suchmaschinen und soziale Medien erhältst.
  • E-Commerce-Shops: Erfasse die Aufrufe und Besucher deiner WooCommerce-Produkte und finde heraus, aus welchen Ländern deine Website die meisten Besuche bekommt.
  • Nachrichten-Websites: Erhaltet tagesaktuelle Statistiken für eure Beiträge und filtert sie nach dem Autor, um eure erfolgreichsten Autoren auszumachen.
  • Startups: Beginnt sofort mit der Verfolgung eurer Besuche und findet heraus, welche frühen Marketing-Taktiken zu Ergebnissen führen.

FAQ

Wird dafür Google Analytics verwendet?

Nein, Independent Analytics ist eine Alternative zu Google Analytics.

Kann ich Independent Analytics und Google Analytics gleichzeitig verwenden?

Ja, du kannst beide gleichzeitig ausführen, ohne dass es zu Problemen oder Fehlern kommt.

Wird meine Website dadurch verlangsamt?

Nein, das Tracking-Skript ist nur 2 KB groß und wird in die Seite integriert, so dass es nach der Installation von Independent Analytics praktisch keinen Unterschied in der Leistung deiner Website gibt.

Beginnt das Tracking sofort?

Ja, in dem Moment, in dem du Independent Analytics installierst, beginnt es mit der Aufzeichnung der Aufrufe. Wenn du nicht sofort Aufrufe siehst, lösche den Cache deiner Website und besuche deine Website in einer privaten Browserfenster, um deinen ersten Aufruf zu erfassen.

Welche Metriken werden aufgezeichnet?

Es erfasst Ansichten, Besucher, Referrer und den ungefähren Standort deiner Besucher.

Muss ich dafür ein Cookie-Popup verwenden?

Nein, Independent Analytics verwendet keine Cookies.

Gibt es einen Tracking-Code?

Ja, aber du musst es nicht selbst hinzufügen. Es wird automatisch auf allen Seiten deiner Website eingefügt, sobald Independent Analytics aktiviert ist.

Funktioniert es, wenn ich Matomo verwende?

Ja, Independent Analytics läuft reibungslos und erzeugt keine Fehler, auch wenn du bereits Matomo oder ein anderes Analyse-Plugin verwendest.

Werden Besuche von Bots gezählt?

Wir verwenden bewährte Techniken, um Besuche von Bots so effizient wie möglich herauszufiltern. Wenn du die Besucherzahlen mit denen von Google Analytics vergleichst, wirst du feststellen, dass die Zahl der Aufrufe und Besucher sehr ähnlich sind. Wenn du Bots noch weiter von der Zählung ausschließen möchtest, empfehlen wir dir, eine Firewall mit Cloudflare einzurichten.

Rezensionen

15. Juni 2024
Even though I can track my social media followers, I wanted to have some simple analytics to understand where my blog traffic was actually coming from. With just a few clicks this plugin tells me what I need to know and where I should place my efforts.
13. Juni 2024
I was testing AnalyticsWP when I discovered this plugin Independent Analytics…and I fell in love with it. The free version packs a punch and offers more than its competitors. It’s also very pretty to look at. Support was also very professional. Well done! *definitely upgrading to the Pro version
17. Mai 2024
Simple to set up and use; all the main metrics I need; very customisable reports; user privacy by design (no cookie banners!). I love small teams that make a great product that does one thing well. Just bought a lifetime licence.
12. Mai 2024
Independent Analytics is characterized by its simple installation on WordPress. In terms of data protection, it complies with GDPR standards, does not use cookies and does not track identifiable data. All data is stored securely on its own (or hosted) server, so there is no interference from third parties. The data is optimally prepared and clearly displayed in the customizable dashboard. Especially for small to medium-sized sites, this is significantly better and easier to understand than the top dog Google. I was so impressed with Independent Analytics that I bought a lifetime license. The real-time display is also very interesting. I no longer have Google running in parallel, the GDPR will thank me 😉 The planned roadmap also promises additional added features in the near future. In short: Independent Analytics is probably the best choice for anyone who doesn’t need Google’s in-depth details or simply doesn’t want to pay with data!
11. Mai 2024
Excellent support. Due to a too small buffer size, url-filtered charts with longer date-ranges didn’t show up to me. Support for the free plugin was extremely helpful and pointed out the problem very competently. This is a great plugin and I’m so happy, that I dropped Google Analytics 4 for this.
28. April 2024
There was an update, I tried to apply it and it failed, it then deactivated the existing installation of the plugin, I tried to reinstall it and it failed saying the folder already existed. It would be sortable but I should not have to do that; and presumably it will do the same at the next update. It is out of my Wordpress installations.
