Experience Lightning-Fast Analytics with Proxima

If you're tired of your website dragging its feet, it might be time to switch to Proxima Analytics. Our script weighs in at less than 1KB, which is a whopping 45 times smaller than Google Analytics. That means less strain on your page weight and faster load times.

We all know how important it is to have a speedy website these days, and using a lightweight analytics tool like Proxima can really make a difference. Not only will it improve the user experience for your visitors, it can also reduce your carbon footprint. So let's take a closer look why speedy websites are so important:

  1. Is your website taking forever to load? Trust us, your visitors don't have the patience for that. In fact, the longer it takes for your site to load, the more likely it is that people will bounce. And we're not just talking about a small increase here - the average bounce rate for sites that load in under 2 seconds is 9%, but it jumps to a whopping 38% for pages that take 5 seconds to load. So if you want to keep people on your site, aim for it to load within 2 seconds.
  2. Have you ever wondered how your website ranks on search engines like Google? One factor that they consider is page speed, so if your site is on the slower side, it could be hurting your rankings. And with lower rankings come fewer visitors from search.
  3. Even browsers like Chrome and Firefox are starting to alert users when they're about to visit a slow-loading site. Nobody wants to be that website, right? So if you want to avoid the embarrassment of your visitors seeing a warning message, you need to make sure your site loads quickly.
  4. Speed isn't just about keeping people around - it's also about making it easier for them to get to the content they want. With a faster site, your visitors will be able to access what they're looking for more quickly and spend more time on your site. This could increase the likelihood that they'll convert into a customer or subscriber.
  5. Besides annoying your visitors, a slower website also uses more data and requires more electricity to load, which means it has a bigger carbon footprint. But with a lighter, faster site, you can reduce the amount of data being transmitted and the amount of electricity used, ultimately leading to a smaller carbon footprint for each and every one of your visitors.
  6. Faster websites are also important for accessibility. Many people have slower internet connections, and a faster site will be more accessible to them. So not only are you providing a better experience for your visitors, you're also helping to make the internet a more equitable place.

The Lighter the Better: How Web Analytics Scripts Affect Page Size and Load Time

Are you tired of your website feeling like it's weighed down by bulky web analytics scripts? You're not alone. Here's a comparison of some of the most popular analytics tools out there:

It's clear to see that Proxima is the lightweight choice for your website's analytics needs. Don't let those other guys slow you down any longer.

The Bloated Giant: Why is Google Analytics So Heavy?

Have you ever wondered why the Google Analytics script is so darn big? Clocking in at a hefty 40 KB, it's no wonder that this tracking tool can slow down your website's loading time. But what makes it so bloated?

Well, the answer lies in its versatility. The Global Site Tag and Universal Analytics script are designed to help you integrate a wide range of Google services and features, such as conversion tracking and remarketing. And with the ability to track hundreds of different metrics for over 125 individual reports, it's clear that Google Analytics is geared towards tracking every possible aspect of your website's performance.

While this level of detail might be useful for some, the vast majority of website owners probably don't need all of these services, integrations, and reports. In fact, for the simple task of tracking website visits, discovering where those visits came from, and understanding what type of content is being consumed, Google Analytics can be seen as overkill.

That's where Proxima comes in. By focusing on the essential metrics only and not collecting any personal data, we've created a lightweight and privacy-friendly alternative to Google Analytics. Plus, with our easy-to-use interface and no prior experience required, getting useful insights from Proxima is a breeze.

Small Steps, Big Impact: How Choosing a Lightweight Analytics Tool Can Help the Environment

Have you ever thought about the environmental impact of your website's analytics script? It might seem like a small detail, but the size of your script can actually make a big difference in terms of carbon emissions.

For example, let's say you have a website that gets 10,000 visitors per month. If you're using a 40 KB analytics script like Google Analytics, that means you're emitting an extra 400,000 KB of data every month. In comparison, a 1 KB script like Proxima's would only add an extra 10,000 KB of data. That's a difference of 390,000 KB, or roughly the equivalent of streaming a high-definition movie on Netflix. But it's not just about the raw data usage. The energy required to transmit and process all that data also has an environmental cost. According to a study by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the internet accounts for roughly 1% of global carbon emissions. By choosing a lightweight analytics tool like Proxima, you can help reduce your website's carbon footprint and do your part in the fight against climate change.

That's a significant difference, and it's important to consider the long-term impact of these emissions. To put it into perspective, the carbon emissions of the 45KB script for 10000 users are equivalent to driving a car for over 21 miles. If you're looking to reduce the carbon footprint of your website, choosing a lightweight analytics tool like Proxima can make a big difference.

But Proxima isn't just a lightweight analytics tool - we're also committed to sustainability and environmental causes. In fact, we pledge to donate 5% of our revenue to environmental causes, and we run our infrastructure on 100% renewable energy servers. By choosing Proxima, you're not only reducing the carbon emissions of your website, you're also supporting a company that's committed to making a positive impact on the planet.
