Looks interesting and love the UI - unconventional. Think a large part of Google Analytics appeal is ability to track sessions. One user opening 10 pages vs 10 users opening 1 page each are very different.

@anil_shanbhag I agree; it's definitely something that will be added to GoatCounter. The trick is doing it in a way that still maintains anonymity.

Was simple to integrate into my website, the stats are relevant and useful to keep an eye on traffic patterns (which pages are popular etc) on my personal website. I like that I'm not sending my visitors' data to google or some other 'data aggregator'. Can recommend!

Upvoted. Especially happy with the pricing model. Please track sessions, alternatives offer that.

What an amazing tool - I absolutely love its simplicity and its ease of use! It's an absolute no brainer for a small project like mine. Everyone, read the rationale for developing this tool. @arp242 one request tho. Can you please make a general counter of the referrals? Otherwise one needs to hop through all the pages manually...

@ad31mar Thank you Adrian :-) There's an issue for that already; if you subscribe to it on GitHub you should get notified when it's done: https://github.com/zgoat/goatcou... it shouldn't be *too* hard, so I'm hoping to get around to it next month.

Love this product. Love this idea. I use for my personal blog, so I was looking for the free solution since I'm not *that* popular. Great idea and wonderful execution

Love it. Have been using it for my personal site and a hobby site. It's simple to integrate, and privacy-first. I care about privacy on the internet and don't want google (or anyone else) cross-tracking my visitors. Please continue making this product 💚
