Hi. I am buliding a new wordpress site. I need to know some very basic stats, in fact the only one I really NEED is a unique visitor. I need nothing more, but could probably use a few other things like what keywords used to find the site in search engines, and top content, and maybe time on page. but again, the only essential is the visitor count.
I will not interact with Google in any way, so Matomo has been suggested to me by many people. It sure looks good, but here’s the problem (and question!)…
This site needs to be as fast as lightning! So whilst Matomo looks good on paper, I assume it must be heavy on the server and slow down the site for visitors. Can anyone using it comment on what those speed impacts are, or are there any tests which have been published?
Also, could anyone comment on how Jetpack compares to Matomo for Wordpress, in terms of site performance/speed impact?
