Overall Satisfaction with GoSquared

I've been using GoSquared for both my personal website and a local community website for over a year, the majority of the time it's just been myself using the system but from time to time I've also allowed other to access the dashboard to keep an eye on things.
  • Support - These guys are super quick at getting back to you when you need help and always friendly
  • Live stats - GoSquared is addictive, it offers detailed information about visitors to your pages in realtime, you'll be watching the dashboard for hours!
  • Ease of use - From the guided setup to the usability of the dashboard GoSquared is really straightforward
  • Pricing - Could be improved for personal users and certain websites (like the small community website I run in my spare time)
  • Provides good insight to what kind of visitors you are attracting to your website
Google Analytics is massively bloated and can be difficult to configure, navigate and understand. While GoSquared doesn't provide the feature set that Google Analytics does it focuses on providing the best experience for the features it does offer. If you just want to know who is visiting your website and when then GoSquared is a simple way of tracing this information.
If the price for personal users / small websites was lower then this score would be a 10 for sure.
While the main feature of GoSquared is realtime stats, it also excels at providing detailed stats over time, and unlike Google Analytics it's easy to navigate and understand.
