QA Analytics does both collecting data comprehensively and visualizing them in various ways.
It works as your own Website Analytics System in your server.
This will be a perfect alternative for Google Universal Analytics, and bring your website analytics to a higher level.
Concern about “personal data” of your visitors?
QA Analytics is NOT cloud-based.
Collected data will be saved in YOUR server.
In recent years, the use of cloud-based access analysis tools has become a risk. Storing data related to personal information outside of the country could be illegal, as you may know about that the GDPR ruling against Google Analytics.
Because the data will be stored ‘in-house’ with QA Analytics, there is no worry about that extra risk due to the GDPR or other privacy laws.
* NO third-party cookies.
* Doesn’t record data which someone can identify as personal information like IP address.
* Doesn’t pursue visitors.
* Doesn’t depend on any outside data resources.
Don’t need to abandon your database area.
QA Analytics will temporarily use your WordPress database field, but all data will be saved in file format on the disc space of your server. The old data in the database will be deleted sequentially.
No need to write tags in code.
Unlike GA4, events data will also be collected without setting tags.
Just activating the plugin, it will start to collect and record data automatically.

Made in Japan 🙂
QA Analytics sets a limitation for the number of PageViews, to keep your server healthy.
It should be less than 100,000 PVs each month.
For the website that has more than that, a support option is available. Please contact us, and you can have a license to remove the restriction.
Major data processing takes place overnight. ( Cron batches, processing program, start to run about 3am in your time-zone. )
Therefore, there will be some load on your server. The larger amount of data, the heavier it gets; and the longer it takes to process.
If your site has a lot of visits and you have other programs that run during night on your server, it would be necessary to consider. We are happy to support if you are unsure about that (possibly charged). Please contact us.

->Points to note when installing
Easy to Setup
- Login to your WordPress admin, go to ‘Plugins’.
- Click ‘Add New’ and search for “QA Analytics”.
- Click ‘Install Now’, then ‘Activate’ the plugin.
- QA Analytics will soon collect the data of your website automatically.
How long can I keep and see the data?
PV data (seen in Stats and Analytics) will be retained for 2 years*, and Events data (in Heatmap and Session Replay) for 28 days*.
The data prior to then will be deleted.
Is there a limit to the number of pages for Heatmap?
Yes. You can choose and set 1 page* to measure.
How many goals can I set?
You can set 1 goal.*
The goal can be changed whenever you want. The value will be calculated every time, and it will not affect on the collected data.
Does it count bot data?
No. Major bots, such as Google bots, are of course not counted.
However, malicious bots are increasing day by day. If you want to exclude them strictly, using a plugin to prevent bots is one of the choices.
What should I know when I use together with a cache plugin?
- QA Analytics uses nonce values as a security measure, and accesses to caches that are more than 24 hours old are excluded from the measurement. Setting the page cache lifetime to 10 hours or less is preferable.
- Some cache plugins create a cache even for bot access. QA does not record bot access. Then, while the cache is being accessed, QA will assume that it is a bot access and will not record it.
Do visits by the administrator count?
No. Visits by people who logged into WordPress admin are not counted.
If you want to exclude your own visits, login the WordPress admin dashboard first, then visit your webpage.
The official site of QA Analytics seems in Japanese! I can’t read that. How can I get more detailed information or an optional support?
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience. We are working hard to make the English version of it, but to be honest, we need more time to get it ready.
