Get the no data sampling advantage with Matomo
Data sampling can cost your business time, resources, and money
If you’re using Google Analytics (GA), you could be making costly business decisions based on inaccurate reports. This is because GA implements data sampling once you’ve collected a certain amount of data. So what you get in a GA report is an estimate rather than the full picture.
While there is a calculation applied to get a sample that gives you good enough insights, we don’t encourage you to settle for just “good enough” data. To make confident, data-driven decisions, you’ll want the actual facts.
How can this cost your business?
Say you rely on Google to tell you which marketing channels to invest more time and money in. With data sampling, you could be finding that the inaccurate reports are leading you down the wrong path. You’re spending time looking into opportunities that may not be right for you. When your data is more accurate you can smartly invest in the right marketing channels without hesitation.
So if you’ve been making business decisions based on sampled data, now’s the time to change. You need to make sure you’re no longer missing out on crucial opportunities!
Matomo gives you an advantage that you can’t get from Google Analytics
With Matomo, you’re guaranteed 100% accurate data. Matomo doesn’t use data sampling on any of our plans compared to free Google Analytics (which has a threshold on how much data is analysed).
With GA, your data is subject to the following general thresholds for sampling:
- Free GA: 500k sessions at the property level for the date range you are using
- GA 360: 100M sessions at the view level for the date range you are using
GA then starts to sample all the data that’s collected after that data cap. E.g. when you collect 5 million page views or more – only 500K of that 5 million is accurate. The data for the remaining 4.5 million (90%) is an assumption based on the 500K sample size.
Google puts you at a disadvantage as you have to pay $150K/year for their GA360 suite just to get accurate reporting.
