QA Analytics

Description

Are you aware that GA4 is unable to analyze users who do not consent to cookies?
Complying with GDPR regulations, imagine this scenario: should 70% of users decline cookie consent, GA4 would lack data on 70% of its users. Additionally, numerous browsers are bolstering their tracking prevention features, particularly against external servers such as GA4.
Do you think there’s no viable alternative to GA4? Wouldn’t you like to ascertain the actual figures?
QA Analytics resolves these concerns by providing a web analytics tool that can collect data without needing cookie consent, all while remaining compliant with GDPR/CCPA regulations.

Concern about “personal data” of your visitors?

QA Analytics is NOT cloud-based.
Collected data will be saved on YOUR host server.

In recent years, the use of cloud-based access analysis tools has become a risk. Storing data related to personal information outside of the country could be illegal, as you may know about that the GDPR ruling against Google Analytics.
Because the data will be stored ‘in-house’ with QA Analytics, there is no worry about that extra risk due to the GDPR or other privacy laws.

Also:
* NO third-party cookies.
* Doesn’t record data which someone can identify as personal information like IP address.
* Doesn’t pursue visitors.
* Doesn’t depend on any outside data resources.

Don’t need to abandon your database area.

QA Analytics will temporarily use your WordPress database field, but all data will be saved in file format on the disc space of your server. The old data in the database will be deleted sequentially.

No need to write tags in code.

Unlike GA4, events data will also be collected without setting tags.
Just activating the plugin, it will start to collect and record data automatically.

Important Notes

Please do NOT compress or minify JavaScript.
If JavaScript is compressed or minified, JavaScript doesn’t run properly and QA Analytics will be unable to collect data. Unexpected errors may occur, too.
For more about -> Supported Environments

If you use a specially-configured server or an exclusive server such as AWS, please refer to the linked page below. You may need to consider and change the configuration.
->Points to note when installing

The major data processing occurs overnight. (Cron jobs and processing programs run nightly in your time zone.)
Therefore, there will be some load on your server. The larger amount of data, the heavier it gets; and the longer it takes to process.
If your site has a lot of visits and you have other programs that run during night on your server, it would be necessary to consider. We are happy to support if you are unsure about that (possibly charged). Please contact us.

FAQ

Is there a limit to the number of pages for the Heatmap?

No, you can view and check heatmap of ALL pages.

Does it count bot data?

No. Major bots, such as Google bots, are of course not counted.
However, malicious bots are increasing day by day. If you want to exclude them strictly, using a plugin to prevent bots is one of the choices.

What should I know when I use together with a cache plugin?

  • Some cache plugins compress or rewrite JavaScript automatically. In that case, QA-measurement-tag will not work properly and data will not be retrieved. To prevent this from happening, you may need to set up the cache plugin not to do so.
  • QA Analytics uses nonce values as a security measure, and accesses to caches that are more than 24 hours old are excluded from the measurement. Setting the page cache lifetime to 10 hours or less is preferable.
  • Some cache plugins create a cache even for bot access. QA does not record bot access. Then, while the cache is being accessed, QA will assume that it is a bot access and will not record it.

Do visits by the administrator count?

No. Visits by people who logged into WordPress admin are not counted.
If you want to exclude your own visits, login the WordPress admin dashboard first, then visit your webpage.

What is “Qusuke”? Why Quokka?

Qusuke is the mascot of QA Analytics.
It’s not a squirrel, nor a mouse. He is a quokka, the world’s happiest animal.
Instead of having a frown while doing web analytics, we want everyone to be happy with it like quokkas smile. Qusuke symbolizes that.
You see, QuokkA is one of where “QA” comes from.

Can I get the support in English?

Yes, let us do our best. We really appreciate your generosity in understanding that we are not native English speakers:)

I can and am willing to contribute to development or translation. Where can I contact you?

That would be wonderful! Please contact us via QA Analytics Contact Form (Google Forms)
We will contact back and look forward to meeting you.

アクセス解析ツールとヒートマップとなんやなんか入れたけど、結局どれも満足に使いこなせていない・・・ そんな方におすすめの解析プラグインです。 WordPressサイトであれば、他のプラグインと同じように追加するだけ。 あとはトップページに表示される基礎的な項目を確認し、さらに気になる所があれば個別の管理画面を見ればOKです。

I have never seen like the Plugin! . It’s takes a few seconds to install this plugin! Very Quickly! I used JetPack before installing QA heatmap analytics. But recently, It works slow and I feel annoying while analyzing my Websites. If you feel stressed when you analyze your Websites, you should try “QA”. In particular, I recommend this Plugin to People Shown below ・Want to avoid complicated settings ・Want to use good Plugin For free ・Want to use Plugins without dropping browsing speed

サイトからの集客を増やすにあたって、ユーザー行動を詳しく把握することは重要だ。 Google公式が提供しているアナリティクスやサーチコンソールだけでは、最低限の情報しか得られない。 一方で、市販のヒートマップでは、デザイン性や機能が薄いものが多く、ひどいものだとバグがあったりする。 QA Heatmap Analyticsは、デザイン性も高く、何よりWordPress上で使えるので利便性が高い。 リリース間もないため、所々に未実装の機能があったりするが、大きな問題ではないと感じる。 近々、実装される動画再生の機能が楽しみだ。 アナリティクス、サーチコンソールと並んで、Web集客の必須ツールになると思う。
