What is Koko Analytics?

The biggest analytics platform in the world is probably Google Analytics (GA). It’s free, very powerful and used by the vast majority of websites to track how many visitors they’re getting. The big problem with GA is that it has a whole load of privacy implications specifically related to GDPR.

Koko Analytics is a great alternative since it pretty much removes all of those privacy issues. It’s a very lightweight plugin that tells you how many visitors your website has had.
