Although I am loathe to say that my study of Matomo is complete, I have learned enough to begin implementation. For without implementation I have no way to test what I have learned, and there is so much more to learn.
With so many things to track and report and so many ways of doing each, selecting the proper combination of parameters and methods is time-consuming and surely an art that one must through doing.
Matomo is not just Google Analytics without Google. It is far more. And, you will be very surprised when I begin posting some of the things that I have discovered. For Matomo is not just about gathering and analyzing information from visitors, it is also about sharing this information with those from whom the information is gathered.
