StatCounter: moving on from the big G.

analytics websites

I have been wanting to get rid of Google Analytics on my website. One, I am trying to reduce the Google-influence in my life, and two, I have to disconnect my VPN to view the Google Analytics page.

This requirement to NOT be on a VPN in 2020 seems weird and unnecessary.

I finally found an alternative – StatCounter!

Creating an account and setup is very fast and easy, copy the tracking code into head.html in the _includes folder if your Jekyll-generated site is like mine. I like the StatCounter’s reports a lot better than Google’s, and the navigating the analytics site from StatCounter is a lot faster and responsive than Google’s Analytics as well.
