    Some affiliates prefer other tracking methods but is it giving harm to their rankings?

    Or let me kindly ask you from the other way:

    Are the sites using GA method rank better than the ones do not use?

    Thanks

    I don't believe that is the case. I've heard from other affiliates who do not use Google Analytics and they seem to have high ranking and profitable websites.

    Speaking from personal experience, I didn't have Google Analytics on my website for years and it was getting natural organic traffic from Google.

    Hello PROFRBcom,

    How are you? :)

    Yes, I think that you're absolutely spot on here with what you have said. It's logical and it makes sense also. ;)

    GA provides useful information for the site owner, but is not required to rank.

    GMWT is must have IMO, but GA, used it for a while when it was 1'st released (many moons ago), since dropped it. Hasn't affect my SERP, so agree with others, it's not required to rank.

    Every change they've made to analytics has been for the worse. These days it's so slow and unintuitive it's almost unusable.

    I'd love an analytics-lite modeled on the circa-2010 version.

    I do not use on one of my websites GA and have the best results, so I think using GA or not does not matter for ranking.

    Thanks a lot.

    I agree with you. It is useful for GA. Not for the site :)

    Hi, Bro for my own opinion GA doesn't guarantee that your website will be good in ranking. But I only like GA for its user-friendly environment that I think anyone can cope.
