This is by far the most accurate and in-depth tracking plugin I've encountered for WordPress.
It's probably a little less user-friendly than others but I think that is because you can do so much more with it. With that said I think it's worth looking through all of the available settings.
The reason I'm writing this review, however, is because of their team. I've had multiple things that needed worked out with the plugin and my support tickets were never left inactive on their end. Needless to say the issues were all resolved!
Great plugin, and awesome service. Keep it up!~
I have been relying on SlimStat to not only track all traffic to my sites accurately but also to present the stats in very useful graphic format. Allows me to compare rates of traffic with previous months and years, by day, by geo source and browser. But importantly in a synthesized, digestable format. The slimstat team just walked me through an issue with my browser that convinced me of their support and staying power.
Plugin Feature: 5 Star
Author Support: Countless **********
Keep it up...
You can also count on the support.
I had an issue, and asked for help on the support forums. Response within a day. Everything else works.
I started off just using Slimstat, but have since purchased the Export to Excel and User Experience addons. All I can say is it meets our needs of tracking and then some.
I even ran into a small issue installing the User Experience addon and submitted a ticket, they had my problem solved within about 3hrs.
Great Product, Great Support!
This is a very easy plugin to use.
I like it and it gives me what I need to know.
However it can get a bit tricky to read all the data..:-/.
Takes a bit of time to get used to it.. but it's all good. :-D
Just what I needed. Love this better than Google analytics. Gives me way more info.
I've not used the plugin much yet but it seems to do everything I wanted of it - i.e. track pages as per Google Analytics with the added benefit of tracking logged-in users.
The main reason for the five star review is the five star customer service. I emailed on Saturday with a question, got a reply Sunday. My reply to this was answered again within 24 hours and my question is entirely resolved.
It's a product and service like this that makes me want to buy their add-ons just to support their work, though the extras offered by the add-ons make their purchase worthwhile anyway.
I've been using Slimstat among other tracker plugins for over a year now and I can say that it is by far my most favorite one. Presentation, filter mechanism, the way you can personalize it, regular updates and overall software stability make it my favorite tracking plugin.
I especially like the fact that you can specify an external website to analyze visitor IPs with a single click. If I had to suggest an improvement, I'd go for an option to add even more external IP lookup services (at least three), since they all differ in terms of features and functionality and sometimes also reliability, so being able to look up more than one without having to copy over the IP manually would be great. It would also be great if visitor search terms were visible right in the main stat with the referrer info, the page they visited etc.
Anway, great plugin that seems to get better over time. In the last few months there have been quite a few great updates that make me hope that Slimstat will be maintained for many years to come :)
