Visitor Analytics as alternative to Fathom

About Fathom

Fathom is a simple web analytics app with a limited amount of information about visitors.

Its minimalist dashboard provides statistics such as the number of visitors and views, bounce rate, best-performing pages, referrals, devices, browsers, etc., but does not go more in depth than that. This basic information only scratches the surface of what you truly need to know about your website in order to to be able to make data-driven decisions for your business.
It also tracks custom events and UTMs, but again, the information here is just at a bare minimum - no details.

Fathom Analytics data is hosted on Amazon servers in the US. 

Summary

In terms of features available and complexity, Visitor Analytics is far more superior to Fathom. Behavioral analytics can give you a whole new perspective on your website; you can see real videos of how your visitors interact with the pages, where they click, what steps they take in order to reach conversions, and so many other details that Fathom cannot provide you with.

Unlike Visitor Analytics, Fathom does not have a free version, only a 7-day free trial. Their lowest monthly subscription plan costs $14 and tracks 100,000 page views, while for the same number of visits tracked by Visitor Analytics you will only pay $8.29. So even though Fathom prices are competitive, they are still higher than those of Visitor Analytics, especially considering that the price grows exponentially with more website traffic.
