Visitor Analytics as alternative to Hotjar

About Hotjar

Hotjar is an analytics application hosted in the United States that only focuses on the behavior of website visitors and on user feedback collection. It offers features such as heatmaps, visitor recordings, polls and surveys, but no statistics or other basic functionalities.

But in order to collect all the website statistics you need for running your business, you will need to use at least two or more other third party tools (extra costs to be considered most likely) that collect and analyze traffic data such as conversions, bounce rates and other vital website information. 

The price of a Hotjar subscription can go up to €389/month or even several thousand dollars per month (depending on your usage).

Summary

In comparison to Hotjar, Visitor Analytics offers a wider set of analytics and statistic tools and has a more granular Privacy Center from which you can choose your own settings, so that the data you collect always reliably complies with the privacy laws in your region.

Below, you may find a comparison between Hotjar and Visitor Analytics in regards to features, privacy and of course pricing. Make sure you consider all the necessary aspects when adding an analytics tracking code to your website.
