Google Analytics Alternative

Do the same thing that you’re doing with GA, only legal

Why do you need a Google Analytics Alternative?

Since October 31, 2020, the GDPR and ePrivacy regulations specifically state that “The user must expressly accept analytics” and “Marketing” cookies. Therefore, they must be “not selected”.

As a result, all online businesses, blogs, e-commerce, and SaaS companies… have noticed a decrease in their data. It is not a real data loss; it simply means less data in their analytics tools.

It is estimated that the percentage of people who do not accept third-party and first-party cookies when visiting a website is between 30% and 65%.

This percentage will be even higher due to the excellent evangelization effort regarding data privacy carried out by Apple.

Apple is making an excellent effort for users’ privacy and against its big (indirect) technological competitors. And this is just the beginning!

Users don’t want to be tracked, they don’t want to be “remarketed”, and they don’t like to be profiled.

Privacy Concerns and Regulatory Compliance

The digital landscape and privacy laws like GDPR, CCPA, and ePrivacy regulations are evolving. Google Analytics relies heavily on cookies, which can be a contention regarding user privacy, so it’s not a privacy-fist analytics solution. An alternative that offers cookieless tracking can help you comply with these regulations.

Is GA4 the right choice for you?

For many years, Google Analytics has been the benchmark for digital measurement. However, following the launch of GA4, a commonly expressed sentiment is ‘I hate GA4′. GA4 can be challenging to use; its reports often don’t align with marketers’ needs, and the data provided can seem neither actionable nor accurate. This shift invites a critical evaluation of whether GA4 meets your specific analytics requirements.

How Much Traffic and Conversions Are You Missing Out On?

Since the implementation of the cookie banner, businesses are generally losing about 45% of their traffic and 17% of conversions. These conversions are often incorrectly assigned to direct traffic sources in most cases. Therefore, depending on the strength of your brand and your traffic sources, this percentage of unmeasured traffic could go up to 80%. It’s important to assess and adapt measurement strategies to capture more accurate data and improve decision-making.

What legal issues can GA4 create for marketers that they might not be aware of?

GA4, like any analytics tool, can pose legal challenges for marketers if not used in compliance with data privacy and protection regulations. These challenges include potential GDPR violations and other privacy regulations for collecting data without proper user consent, especially in the European Union; improper use of personal data if the collected data is used in ways not authorized by users; and lack of transparency in data collection, which can lead to legal non-compliance. It’s crucial for marketers to be aware of these regulations and ensure that their use of GA4 and other analytics tools adheres to all applicable privacy and data protection laws.

“What support does SEAL Metrics offer as a cookieless alternative to Google Analytics?

We support you throughout the implementation process and advise you on the KPIs to ensure the transition is both pleasant and useful.

How is SEAL Metrics preparing for the future in the field of web analytics?

At SEAL Metrics, we are continuously developing new tools and staying up-to-date with regulatory changes. Our commitment is to ensure that our services are not only prepared for the present but also ready to meet the future challenges of digital marketing and web analytics.

Why SEAL Metrics is the best Google Analytics 4 alternative

While our competition is working to comply with GDPR, at SEAL Metrics, GDPR doesn’t directly apply to us due to our new approach to measurement. At SEAL Metrics, we’ve pioneered a groundbreaking technology that empowers marketers with invaluable business intelligence. What sets us apart is that we don’t track individuals or their behaviors. This is where SEAL Metrics truly adds value.

ePrivacy Regulation is crystal clear about individual tracking: If you track a user individually, even anonymously, you must request consent.

SEAL Metrics doesn’t track people; we track page views. All traffic is 100% anonymous, so GDPR doesn’t apply to SEAL because we are not tracking users, either we store personal data. We don’t need to be GDPR compliant.

SEAL Metrics is better than Google Analytics 4 if you don’t want to lose more important data

Track 100% of your traffic and conversions per UTM:

Since we do not work with user ID nor fingerprinting, we can measure 100% all the good stuff without any legal risk.

SEAL Metrics works with a proprietary system based on Source IDs, which does NOT identify individual visitors, and we do not need an individual tracking system. It identifies page views and traffic sources.

Each time a user accesses the website from a source, the system assigns a sourceID (not user_id) to that source. It doesn’t affect your SEO. This is why we are one of the best Google Analytics alternatives. Track all your traffic and conversions with no legal problems.

Everything you need in GA4, you have it in SEAL Metrics
