Announcing the Top Rated Web Analytics Tools for 2019

TrustRadius Top Rated

Today, we awarded the 2019 TrustRadius Top Rated badges for Web Analytics Tools. The TrustRadius Top Rated awards are the most trusted in the industry because they are an unbiased reflection of customer sentiment, based solely on user feedback and satisfaction scores. Top Rated awards are the voice of the market and are not influenced by analyst opinion, the vendor’s company size, popularity, or status as a TrustRadius customer.

Web Analytics Tools

Web analytics tools enable businesses to track user activity and engagement on their website, and in some cases on social platforms and mobile applications as well. These tools track metrics such as number of active users, number of pageviews over a specified time period, conversion rates, number of onsite link clicks, how far users travel down the page, and average time on page. Some tools may specialize in one area of web analytics such as heatmaps and scroll maps, visitor recordings, A/B and split URL testing , and audience segmentation and personalization. There are also larger web analytics platforms that provide marketing, SEO, product, and sales teams with an overall view of user activity and engagement metrics. All of these tools aim to help businesses assess how their website, social profiles, or mobile apps are being used by site visitors and make informed content and site design decisions.

Here are the winners:

Google Analytics

Google Analytics also includes features such as customizable reporting, site audience segmentation using demographic and behavior filters, and ability to track eCommerce performance metrics such as number of transactions and time to purchase. The majority of Google Analytics users on TrustRadius are from small (35%) or mid-sized (31%) businesses. According to reviewers on TrustRadius, Google Analytics provides a great overview of site user activity with insight into real-time activity and metrics such as time on page, user demographics, and user sourcing.

“The Analytics platform allows us to get a real-time view of our audiences and make adjustments in our growth and execution of marketing strategy. Additionally, we’re able to better grasp where customers are referred to our site, which parts of the sales funnel are most successful, and where we need to improve. We set KPI’s through our dashboard and are able to see current updates on when we meet our goals.”
