Why we use instead of Google Analytics at dotwall

In the current digital landscape, your website acts as the primary storefront for your business. Understanding how visitors interact with your site is crucial for growth and engagement. At dotwall Web Design, we emphasise the importance of comprehensive website visitor reports, ensuring you’re always informed and ahead in the digital space.

Google Analytics vs.

What is Google Analytics? Google Analytics is a widely used web analytics service. It tracks and reports website traffic, providing insights into visitor behaviour, source of traffic, and engagement metrics. While powerful, it can be complex and overwhelming for some users, especially those new to web analytics. What is is a streamlined, user-friendly alternative to traditional web analytics tools. It offers a simplistic approach to tracking website performance. With an easy-to-understand dashboard and straightforward metrics, Plausible makes web analytics accessible to everyone, regardless of their technical expertise.

Dotwall Web Design set us up with Plausible Analytics at Rothley Park Golf Club, and it's been superb. User-friendly and insightful, it offers exactly what we need to understand our site's traffic. The weekly summary reports every Monday are a highlight, giving us a quick yet comprehensive view of our online performance.
