Overall Satisfaction with GoSquared

It's used to track visitors to our websites. It is used across the whole organization and helps to find out from which countries and regions our readers come, what they enjoy to read and on what way they have found to us (Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.). The daily update Emails, fresh in the inbox each morning, are excellent and lets us see what was popular the previous day.
  • The daily update Emails, fresh in the inbox each morning, are excellent and lets us see what was popular the previous day
  • We can track Facebook shares and Twitter RTs and so can thank our Fans & Followers for sharing
  • Trends are excellent to see what was popular in the previous weeks and months
  • CloudFlare integration is spotty - stats in Cloudflare (tracks also Javascript off visits) and GoSquared stats are often significantly at odds
  • Notifications don't seem to work very well
  • Dashboard likes to re-set itself even when it was arranged & saved previously
  • Weekly/ Monthly/ Yearly absolute numbers
  • Better interaction with Fans & Followers
  • Seeing popular posts and being able to re-share them again regularly
  • Tracking where content is shared and accessed from
  • Google Analytics,Cloudflare
As I said previously, I rather pay for a superb product than use a good free product. I think GoSquared beats Google Analytics on user-friendliness, usability, and UX. The team seems to not stand still and is always innovating, which I value, too.
It's my analytics tool of choice and will continue to use it for the foreseeable future. A great UI, the daily, weekly and monthly stats Emails are very useful in evaluating which coontent was good, and I like using the product on a daily basis.
I basically always recommend GoSquared to friends and colleagues if they're looking for an Analytics-type software. You get what you pay for and I find GoSquared a lot more usable and user-friendly than competitors. You need to ask yourself if you can pay the small fee for a very good product, or if you take one of the free competitor products.
