In praise of Piwik

Piwik is a cool tool that for me replaced Google Analytics as my website monitoring tool of choice at the weekend after Google decided that they did not want to provide me with any useful data anymore. Piwik now monitors all my websites and produces far better data and reports than Google Analytics ever did. I used to have a selection of complex spreadsheets to take data from Google Analytics and manipulate the data to produce the information and reports that I and my clients wanted. Not any more, they are now available straight out of the box. After Google admitted that they were hiding keyword data I could not even rely on the data they provided. Now I and my clients can have absolute confidence in the data. Thank you Piwik!
