Piwik Setup

Piwik is an Open Source web analytics software that allows you see how visitors come to your website and use it. Reported data about visitors includes number of visits, length of visits, what countries visitors came from, what websites visitors are coming from, and what search engine keywords brought visitors to the website. Piwik also supports basic conversion tracking. It is similar to Google Analytics and other web based solutions, but you control all your data and reporting is done in real time. You can see a demo of the Piwik here.

Piwik consist of two pieces, the software that is installed on your website and the JavaScript tag that is added to your website's pages. We configure both portion for you. We can also import existing Google Analytics data for your website into your new Piwik installation. Like other software that is installed on your website it needs to be kept updated. Piwik features a automated upgrade features that in most cases will allow you to update with one click.
