Visitor Analytics as alternative to Simple Analytics

About Simple Analytics

Simple Analytics is, well, simple. It provides only a few basic reports about uniques views, location, referrals, UTM campaigns. So, just basic information, nothing elaborate, nothing that allows you to truly and accurately analyze your website.

Simple Analytics data is hosted both in the Netherlands and the United States and according to Builtwith, 2,731 live websites are currently using this tool. (November 2021)

Summary

In comparison to Simple Analytics, Visitor Analytics offers a wider set of analytics and statistics features, at a lower price. Visitor Analytics also has behavioral statistics (heatmaps, funnels, session recordings) and user interaction features.

The Visitor Analytics Privacy Center lets you choose the data settings most suitable for your website. This way, the data you collect is always accurate and complies with the privacy laws in your country. 

Below, you can find a comparison between these two tools in regards to pricing, features, privacy, and more. With Visitor Analytics you get to be more privacy compliant and have access to more features, everything at a better price than with Simple Analytics.
