If you’re used to the deep dive of Google Analytics, you’ll find there’s a lot missing, but that’s perhaps also an opportunity to reevaluate how much analysis you really need. I’ve also got server-side analytics via Netlify to keep an eye on things like 404s (welcome back, everyone who subscribed to the old Atom feed four years ago!); Netlify’s approach is also plenty sufficient for my needs without adding a layer of surveillance I neither want nor need.
