FAQ

Knowledgebase

Burst will maintain and grow a knowledgebase about Burst Statistics and other products to assist, while using Burst Statistics burst-statistics.com

Can I block IP Addresses?

Yes, you can block IP addresses in the Burst Statistics settings. You can also exclude User Roles from being tracked.

Why is Burst Statistics Privacy-friendly?

Burst Statistics provides an Analytics Dashboard with anonymized data that is yours, and yours alone.

What is Cookieless tracking?

Burst Statistics can be used without setting cookies or storing data in browsers. However, this can affect accuracy; that’s why a hybrid option is possible with cookies after consent. Read more about Cookieless tracking.

Does it affect performance?

Burst Statistics uses an endpoint to minimize requests during sessions. For best performance you can always use our ‘Turbo Mode’ which loads Burst in the footer, using the defer attribute.

The plugin is top. It has been constantly improved for quite some time now. Now, for example, you can also see which pages were called up today. Great. Keep it up and thank you for a plugin that leaves hardly anything to be desired, even in the free version.

I use this on all my sites. Basic statistics plugin. No way near as much features as what some of the other paid plugins will give you, however for a free plugin it does it's job and does it pretty well. Unless you really need detailed statistical info this would work for most small to medium sites. Pro version coming soon, very excited to see what these guys bring to the table.

After one month of usage, I can say this is the best way to collect stats on WP without sharing data with 3rd party, and without being affected by ad blockers. I also tried Statify, Koko and others: for me Burst is by far the best in terms of performance, reliability, and reporting. Dev, you're doing a great job!

Nice plugin, gives a quick overview about the page visits and where the visitors come from. Good to know that it is GDPR friendly. Thanks for this helpful plugin!
