5 million rows of data, really? If you want your website to slow to a crawl, and backups to take hours to generate, and restorations to take days, then this plugin may be for you. Bleh, BLOAT.

In view of replacing Universal Analytics with Google Analytics 4, I found Clicky really useful for those sites that don’t need complicated statistics. Setup is really easy

I have used Clicky before, so familiar with how to set it up. However, using this plugin did not work for me. After spending days trying to get it to work without success, I finally added the Clicky tracking code to the footer.php file and tracking immediately worked. Frustrating!!!

Clicky is a great alternative to Google Analytics, which I refuse to use. I also use Statcounter. Right now I prefer Statcounter because it seems to pick up more referring page information than Clicky does. I don’t know if this is a problem with the plugin or Clicky analytics but the missing information is sometimes pretty critical because I will get a spike in traffic and I don’t know where it is coming from or what page they visited.
