I’ve been playing with Matomo off-and-on for about 2 months now, and though it’s REALLY interesting and looks comprehensive - the stats don’t seem to add up, and I can’t figure out why.
I cannot ask my boss to pay several thousand dollars for Matomo consulting if I can’t show him that we’ll get a return on our money.
The fact is, that Matomo’s numbers are between 10% and 20% of Google’s Analytics, and an even lower percentage of CloudFlare’s. I can stand 5-10% difference, but 80%-90% is just too much.
My assumption is that some browsers are simply not sending actions. My server is HTTPS, and I use CloudFlare’s always-HTTPS feature. That uses a CloudFlare certificate.
Do I need to put in a certificate matching subdomain.domain? Is there a way to tell if a browser won’t send a call?
Any help on this would be appreciated. If I can’t resolve this, I have to use something else, or ( god forbid ) roll my own. I’d REALLY like to use Matomo if possible.
