So I’ve been running alongside google for a site I manage and I much prefer keen for drilling into the data. It has an auto collector script that works much like ga would except you own all the data and it has ways to disable it in the case that users want to opt out. It has a generous free tier and is very inexpensive after that. For a site with about 1k monthly uniques it ran about $1.50 a month on average.

As another plus it’s highly customizable so you can capture interesting stats and behaviors and embed cool dataviz graphs where you want.


Interesting. Price is nice. I wonder if they are GDPR compliant (They are in the US as far as I can see).
