  1. This looks like a great alternative to GA for my purposes. My main question how much space on the hosting server the data would take up over time. Is there a way to offload some or all of it, for example to AWS? Or set retention policies?

    • Hi Nancy,

      The next version of Koko Analytics comes with a feature to delete data older than a certain number of months, but really it should not be an issue for decades unless your website has tens of thousands of pages which are all visited each and every day. If that is not the case, data will not surpass several MB’s per year of data.

  2. How is koko-analytics treating bot-visits?
    How many is it filtering out?
    And what makes it better than “Statify” statistic-plugin?

  3. Are there any plans (or ways) to integrate this into MainWP instead of Google Analytics? Maybe also in the Client Reports?
