Why are we passionate about Matomo?
Our co-owner, Michael, was a big fan of Google Analytics for many years. The advent of GDPR led to a significant loss of data. This, along with limited customisation options, and the inability to export raw data triggered a turning point that led him to explore alternatives. That’s when we stumbled upon Matomo. Initially there was a steep learning curve, but today, it gives us unparalleled control, creative space for data analysis, and rich insights that we could never have achieved with other tools. We’ve even begun exploring new frontiers, such as feeding our data to ChatGPT to extract even deeper insights.

Should I replace Google Analytics with Matomo?
For projects where data insight is important, choosing a website analytics tool is a big decision. While both Matomo and Google Analytics offer valuable insights, users are increasingly considering a migration from Google to Matomo.
Here are some of the advantages of Matomo:
Data Ownership & GDPR-Compliance
Matomo can be self-hosted and doesn’t collect personal data or share data with third parties, ensuring GDPR compliance and offering a distinct edge in user data protection over Google Analytics. You retain complete control and ownership of your data.
Customisable & Open Source
With Matomo you can gain insights into and even make changes to the source code, which makes it possible to create your own templates and develop bespoke reports, dashboards and integrations to meet your specific business needs.
No Third-party Cookies
Google’s reliance on third-party cookies, which many users block or delete due to privacy concerns, can disrupt accurate user behaviour tracking. Cookie confirmation popups can be an annoyance for users and draw attention to the fact that users are being tracked.
There are also valid arguments against moving to Matomo:
Transition Time & Effort
Migrating to any new platform involves a learning curve, and the transition itself requires planning, costs money and in certain cases might also mean a temporary disruption in gathering and interpreting data.
Integration with Google Services
Many businesses heavily rely on Google’s suite of tools (e.g. Google Ads, Search Console). Google Analytics integrates seamlessly with these services, providing a unified experience. While Matomo also offers integrations, these are not as streamlined when it comes to Google’s ecosystem.
Machine Learning Insights
Google Analytics, especially in its more recent versions, employs machine learning algorithms to provide predictive metrics, anomaly detection and other valuable insights. While Matomo offers a robust analytics suite, it lacks Google’s advanced AI-driven features.
The trend toward Matomo reflects a growing emphasis on data privacy and control. Our goal is to provide our clients with a clear, informed perspective and help them to choose the analytics tool that’s right for their website’s objectives and for their business.

Common questions to us as Matomo developers
Matomo is an open-source web analytics platform that allows website owners to gain insights into their website traffic and users’ behaviour. Unlike proprietary solutions, Matomo places a strong emphasis on privacy and data ownership, ensuring data remains in the hands of the website owner.
Matomo’s design prioritises privacy by default. With its GDPR-compliant setup, data is stored locally, eliminating the need to share it with third parties. Unlike tools that rely on third-party cookies, Matomo’s approach minimises privacy concerns and ensures better compliance with various data protection regulations.
Absolutely! Matomo is designed with user-friendliness in mind, making it relatively straightforward to migrate your data and set up tracking. There are guides and tools available to assist in the transition, ensuring that shifting from Google Analytics to Matomo is as seamless as possible.
Yes. Matomo’s architecture supports a wide range of website sizes. Whether you’re running a personal blog or managing a multinational corporation’s digital presence, Matomo provides the flexibility and scalability required to meet diverse analytics needs.
Being “self-hosted” means that Matomo runs on your own server infrastructure rather than on external or third-party servers. This gives you complete control over your own analytics data. By self-hosting Matomo, you determine where your data is stored, how it’s accessed, and by whom, reducing reliance on third-party providers and mitigating potential privacy concerns associated with external data handling.
While Matomo is designed to be user-friendly and straightforward, it’s crucial to monitor and update the platform regularly for optimal performance, new features, and security. Thankfully, with its active community and robust documentation, maintaining Matomo is generally less cumbersome than many anticipate.
