AJdG Matomo Tracker offers no frills, just tracking stats. All the stats you need. That’s the goal of AJdG Matomo Tracker. And it doesn’t get any more simple that.
While other plugins are bloated with all kinds of nonsense or add bulky dashboards. AJdG Matomo Tracker does not.

Add the Matomo tracking code to your WordPress and ClassicPress websites footer with only a few clicks. Optionally you can extend the tracker with some useful features that both help you understand your visitors better and help you optimize the effectiveness of your website.

AJdG Matomo Tracker is designed to be barebones but still provide the complete experience for the majority of people.
Collect all the stats you need via the built-in Matomo tracking code.
Easily track dead links or inlinks that end up on 404 error pages so you can effectively take action and fix those issues. As a result, Google will like you more!

Do you use RSS and Atom feeds? Ever wondered how effective they are? Yeah, me too!
With AJdG Matomo Tracker you can track incoming clicks from your RSS and Atom feeds.

What is Matomo?

Matomo is a great analytics tool if you don’t want to use Jetpack Stats, WP-Statistics and especially Google Analytics.
Or simply if you want a second opinion. On my own website for a while I’ve used both Jetpack Stats and Matomo – Of-course with AJdG Matomo Tracker as my tracking plugin.
Matomo effectively can replace Google Analytics. If you use their self-hosted solution all data you record is yours without big data watching over your shoulder.

AJdG Matomo Tracker works with both self-hosted (on premise) and with Matomo Cloud installations.
