I would like to ask if you use or prefer a plugin to get detailed and geo-targeted traffic results for the websites you own.

Let's make a debate on that!

Thanks in advance

Honestly, you don't need more tracking than Google Analytics. Word of advice, try not to get yourself too wrapped up in the numbers and waste time that could be better used continuing to build your site and good content. Data and stats are important, but it's easy to get obsessed and distracted with numbers and before you know it, you realize the reason you aren't generating better traffic is because you are more focused on numbers and data than you are with your content.

GA is very cool, especially when you first set it up and as a former Market Research analysis guy, it was easy to get wrapped up in it all. All the best and don't sacrifice performance of your site trying to install plug-ins. GA is great and also has a great app to compliment it and monitor stats on the go. All the best!

There is no better data than Google Analytics and it is completely free. Here is the training on how to set this up within your website.

How to Install Google Analytics Using the All in One SEO Plugin

Statcounter and the other plugins will slow down your website performance and lead to far less granular data. They do provide simple data, but because there is a superior and free option in Google Analytics, I 100% recommend that.

Hi Kyle,
Yeap I've seen that training (and the others you made for us) and followed everything. My niches are linked to Google Analytics and it seems they are working fine!

Thanks again and have a great weekend!

i find Google analytics does the job fine, to many plugins can slow your site down, so why put one in that you dont really need. Just my opinion.

Thanks Ian for your prompt reply. I am also using G-Analytics. I was just wondering if anyone uses another one.

Thanks and Take care
