What is Matomo Analytics?

Matomo Analytics lets you safely track your online community usage. You can now easily integrate Matomo Analytics with your online community to safely and securely track platform usage. Create detailed data-rich reports without compromising on data privacy.

You can create community analytics that let you make data-driven decisions:

  • Understand who your visitors are and which pages make them convert into members
  • Get to know the true value of your content by seeing which pages drive the most traffic and engagement
  • Choose from over 200 dimensions and metrics to get the insights you need for meaningful reporting

Maltomo is the leading open-source alternative to Google Analytics. Its focus is on privacy, security, and user trust above all. Matomo users can safely use analytics without worrying about data being extracted for marketing or other third-party purposes. This is the tool to use if your organization wants to retain 100% data ownership.

Matomo can also be configured to follow even the strictest of privacy laws – like GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA, and PECR.
