Piwik – Web analytics – Open source

is a downloadable, open source (GPL licensed) real time web analytics software program. It provides you with detailed reports on your website visitors: the search engines and keywords they used, the language they speak, your popular pages… and so much more.

If you don’t speak english, fear not. Piwik is available in more than 40 languages (and growing!).

What makes Piwik unique from the competition:

  1. Real time web analytics reports: in Piwik, reports are by default generated in real time. For high traffic websites, you can choose the frequency for reports to be processed (more info)
  2. You own your web analytics data: because Piwik is installed on your server, the data is stored in your own database and you can get all the statistics using the powerful Piwik Analytics API
  3. Modern, easy to use User Interface: you can fully customize your dashboard, drag and drop widgets you want to display.
  4. Piwik features are built inside plugins: you can add new features and remove the ones you don’t need. You can build your own web analytics plugins or hire a consultant to have your custom feature built in Piwik
  5. Vibrant international Open community of more than 50,000 active users
