QA Analytics


Demo Video

QA Analytics does both collecting data comprehensively and visualizing them in various ways.
It works as your own Website Analytics System in your server and shall 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 on YOUR host 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.

Get and own precise data

QA Analytics collects:

  • PageViews / Sessions
    • time on page / time on site
    • from the first page to the last page
  • Visitors
    • new or returning
    • device type, OS, browser
  • Referrer
  • Events
    • DOM clicked/tapped, mouse moving, page scrolled, etc.

View intuitively and profoundly

QA Analytics provides:

  • Realtime … See someone visiting your website ‘right now’.

    • Counter of users per minute
    • Session information and session replays ( comes up in a list as long as a session ends )
  • Analytics … Check and analyze your site visits during a particular period.

    • Overview / Statistics
    • Audience
    • Acquisition
    • Behavior (Site Content)
    • Conversions (Goals)
  • Heatmap … Get to know visitors’ aspects and events on your website page. Experience this well-built map.

    • Attention Map
    • Click Heatmap / Click-Count Map
    • Scroll Map
  • Session Replays … Follow and trail users’ action, by playback like a video.

  • SEO Analysis … Connect with Google API and monitor how search engines impact your site.

    • Search Performance / Rankings
    • Goal Completion from landing pages

Other Features

  • Upgrade options to get the plugin more practical:

    • Measure events on all the pages
    • Extend data retention period
    • Connect to Google Data Studio
  • Made in Japan 🙂

Important Notes

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.
This “number of PageViews” is the number that is counted across the entire site, not just within the pages selected to measure event data.
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.

Please do NOT compress or minify JavaScript.
If JavaScript is compressed or minified, JavaScript doesn’t run properly and QA Analytics will be unable to collect data. Unexpected errors may occur, too.

If you use a specially-configured server or an exclusive server such as AWS, please refer to the linked page below. You may need to consider and change the configuration.

Easy to Setup

  2. Click ‘Add New’ and search for “QA Analytics”.
  3. Click ‘Install Now’, then ‘Activate’ the plugin.
  4. QA Analytics will soon collect the data of your website automatically.

How to install


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.
*Upgrade available.

Is there a limit to the number of pages for Heatmap?

Yes. You can choose and set 1 page* to measure.
*Upgrade available.

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.
*Upgrade available.

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?

  • Some cache plugins compress or rewrite JavaScript automatically. In that case, QA-measurement-tag will not work properly and data will not be retrieved. To prevent this from happening, you may need to set up the cache plugin not to do so.
  • 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.

What is “Qusuke”? Why Quokka?

Qusuke is the mascot of QA Analytics.
It’s not a squirrel, nor a mouse. He is a quokka, the world’s happiest animal.
Instead of having a frown while doing web analytics, we want everyone to be happy with it like quokkas smile. Qusuke symbolizes that.
You see, QuokkA is one of where “QA” comes from.

The official site of QA Analytics seems mostly in Japanese. I can’t read that.

We deeply apologize for the inconvenience. We are working hard to make the English version of the pages, but to be honest, we need more time to get them ready.
For questions about how to use or about specifications of the plugin, please use Support Forum. Our Support Site Manuals also can be a help.
If you are interested in to upgrade but have some questions, please fill a form and contact us.

Can I get the support in English?

Yes, let us do our best. We really appreciate your generosity in understanding that we are not native English speakers:)

I can and am willing to contribute to development or translation. Where can I contact you?

That would be wonderful! Please contact us via QA Analytics Contact Form (Google Forms)
We will contact back and look forward to meeting you.

アクセス解析ツールとヒートマップとなんやなんか入れたけど、結局どれも満足に使いこなせていない・・・ そんな方におすすめの解析プラグインです。 WordPressサイトであれば、他のプラグインと同じように追加するだけ。 あとはトップページに表示される基礎的な項目を確認し、さらに気になる所があれば個別の管理画面を見ればOKです。

I have never seen like the Plugin! . It's takes a few seconds to install this plugin! Very Quickly! I used JetPack before installing QA heatmap analytics. But recently, It works slow and I feel annoying while analyzing my Websites. If you feel stressed when you analyze your Websites, you should try "QA". In particular, I recommend this Plugin to People Shown below ・Want to avoid complicated settings ・Want to use good Plugin For free ・Want to use Plugins without dropping browsing speed

サイトからの集客を増やすにあたって、ユーザー行動を詳しく把握することは重要だ。 Google公式が提供しているアナリティクスやサーチコンソールだけでは、最低限の情報しか得られない。 一方で、市販のヒートマップでは、デザイン性や機能が薄いものが多く、ひどいものだとバグがあったりする。 QA Heatmap Analyticsは、デザイン性も高く、何よりWordPress上で使えるので利便性が高い。 リリース間もないため、所々に未実装の機能があったりするが、大きな問題ではないと感じる。 近々、実装される動画再生の機能が楽しみだ。 アナリティクス、サーチコンソールと並んで、Web集客の必須ツールになると思う。
