Google Analytics is particularly well suited for tracking and analyzing customer behavior on a grocery e-commerce platform. It provides a wealth of information about customer behavior, including what products are most popular, what pages are visited the most, and where customers are coming from. This information can help the platform optimize its website for better customer engagement and conversion rates. However, Google Analytics may not be the best tool for more advanced, granular analysis of customer behavior, such as tracking individual customer journeys or understanding customer motivations. In these cases, it may be more appropriate to use additional tools or solutions that provide deeper insights into customer behavior.

Due to its price structure lick your ages best for smaller businesses it’s actually rather affordable. It also works best on WordPress Squarespace or Shopify websites. I would recommend that someone be in charge of managing the interface and be responsible for watching user behavior videos or you will lose out on Valuable insights. This product doesn’t want itself all that well two single page apps or websites with lots of website visitors one thing I wish that they would’ve let us do is only capture videos if a user did a specific action. Another issue is that the videos only were saved for 30 days.

Helps us to zero in on what we need to do our job. Easy set up for adding pages to heatmaps and recordings. Comprehensive interface for viewing results. Reasonable pricing. Our clients enjoy the low entry price to be able to see just how valuable the product is. Read full review Cons Data sampling is somewhat inaccurate on the free tier - this is addressed in premium but is expensive. Some of the UI is very similar in naming when presenting different data, some in-situ information might be useful. Gotchas around filtering and data validation. Implementation can be tricky, it can take a lot of time and expertise to get a full, accurate picture of your metrics. Read full review Aggregated data for a particular page type or directory is clunky and requires multiple steps. Heatmap access requires direct input of targeted pages - having quick links would be easier. Lucky Orange's code snippet can result in a site's security settings blocking the real-time heatmaps, requiring you to disable your security settings, remove site code, or manually debug your site code to view your heatmap overlays.

We will continue to use Google Analytics for several reasons. It is free, which is a huge selling point. It houses all of our ecommerce stores' data, and though it can't account for refunds or fraud orders, gives us and our clients directional, real time information on individual and group store performance.

The pricing options for large business are very lacking. The value of Lucky Orange doesn't really increase after your first 50,000 page visits but the service is on a sliding scale so the more traffic you have the more they charge. In addition, we got lots of useful information out of lucky orange in the beginning but after a while we knew what things needed to be fixed and are waiting on our developers to create the AB tests.

Google Analytics provides a wealth of data, down to minute levels. That is it's greatest detriment: find the right information when you need it can be a cumbersome task. You are able to create shortcuts, however, so it can mitigate some of this problem. Google is continually refining Analytics, so I do not doubt there will be improvements

We all know Google is at top when it comes to availability. We have never faced any such instances where I can suggest otherwise. All you need is a Google account, a device and internet connection to use this super powerful tool for reporting and visualising your site data, traffic, events, etc. that too in real time.

This has been a catalyst for improving our site's traffic handling capabilities. We were able to identify exit% from our sites through it and we used recommendations to handle and implement the same in our sites. We have been increasing the usage of Google Analytics in our sites and never had any performance related issues if we used Analytics

The Google reps respond very quickly. However, sometimes they can overly call you to set up an apportionment. I'm very proficient and sometimes when I talk to reps, they give beginner tutorials and insights that are a waste of time. I wish Google would understand my level of expertise and assign me to a rep (long-term) that doesn't have to walk me through the basics.

I think my biggest take away from the Google Analytics implementation was that there needs to be a clear understanding of what you want to achieve and how you want to achieve it before you start. Originally the analytics were added to track visitors, but as we became more savvy with the product, we began adding more and more functionality, and defining guidelines as we went along. While not detrimental to our success, this lack of an overarching goal resulted in some minor setbacks in implementation and the collection of some messy data that is unusable.

I have not used
as much, but I know they offer something called customer journey analytics, which we are evaluating now. I have used
, and I find them much better than Google Analytics. I feel a fairly nontechnical person could learn
in about a month. They also offer features like competitive analysis (on content, keywords, traffic, etc.), which is very useful. If you have to choose one among
and Google Analytics, I would say go for

Pricing is another great feature from Lucky Orange. Even though they have increased it over time, they remain highly competitive and are still one of the only companies, if not the only one, that offers the combination of features that they have available on their site. So their overall value is going to be nearly impossible to beat. Besides their amazing value, the actual features that they include are very useful and not all companies included all of the features that they offered. For the pricing and the features, nobody else came close.

Google Analytics is currently handling the reporting and tracking of near about 80 sites in our project. And I am not talking about the sites from different projects. They may have way more accounts than that. Never ever felt a performance issue from Google's end while generating or customising reports or tracking custom events or creating custom dimensions
