Support » Plugin: ExactMetrics - Google Analytics Dashboard for WordPress (Website Stats Plugin) » Bizarre marketing: give little, push relentlessly

  • I finally got rid of this plugin. It has the most transparently greedy marketing strategy. The free version gives you minimal data, less that the great and free Google SiteKit. Basically it is a shameless marketing tool to sell the pro version. Almost every link is useless if you don’t want to cough up money. Over and over you click and all you get are links to the purchase pro version. The dashboard panel is ridiculous. The giant ads below are larger than the data panel! Why would anyone give away so much valuable real-estate on their dashboard to a shameless advertiser? It is such a turnoff, i never even considered the pro version.

    Hi @polaatx,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. I’m sorry about the frustration here.

    It’s not our intent to cause clutter. We try to provide as much value as possible to our users by communicating the Pro version features because many users aren’t aware of them and can benefit greatly.

    With our Lite (free) version, you’re able to track and view critical site statistics (such as page views in the last 30 days, top posts and pages, etc) and automatically track custom events such as telephone and email click tracking, affiliate, and outbound link tracking. You will only be able to view our Overview report in the Lite version, but you can visit analytics.google.com directly to view all of the data that we help track.

    I hope this information helps. We really appreciate you for giving us a try and if you have any suggestions for the things you’d like to see in the Lite version, please let me know and I’d be happy to share your feedback with the team.

    And if you’d like more help with using ExactMetrics Lite, please feel welcome to reach us at https://www.exactmetrics.com/lite-support/

    Thank you.
