Google Analytics importer

Google will stop supporting UA (Universal Analytics) properties in Google Analytics by the end of 2023. They'll stop processing pageviews on July 1, 2023, and soon after, they’ll be deleting all of your historical data. And note there is no way to import UA data in their new GA4 product. GA4 is also not been well received by SMBs.

This is why Fathom Analytics has built a Google Analytics importer which imports UA and GA4 data. Our quick-to-use and straightforward import tool allows you to save your Google Analytics data forever into our easy-to-use dashboard. We don’t even charge for historical data imports (regardless of the amount of data).

To recap:

  1. Google will stop supporting its current version of Analytics on July 1, 2023
  2. Google will be deleting all analytics data from UA after that.
  3. Google has no way to import UA historical data into the new GA4 product.
  4. GA4 is time-consuming to learn, hard to use, and overkill for most businesses.

Universal Analytics is dead.

Here’s why thousands of businesses have switched from Google Analytics to Fathom

Universal Analytics has a death date (July 1, 2023), and no easy way to save that data or import it into GA4.

The internet is also full of GA4 horror stories. It feels like Google is abandoning website analytics for everyone except huge enterprise customers and hardcore data scientists. They’ve faced many privacy issues, and GA4 is their hardest-to-use version of analytics yet. Small businesses, bootstrappers, and agencies are abandoning Google Analytics and switching to Fathom (and here’s why):

Fathom Analytics doesn’t have digital privacy issues

The use of Google Analytics has been ruled illegal in the EU, and fines/complaints go to the website using their software. Fathom Analytics is privacy-first, and “GDPR compliant” is our middle name. This also means you don’t need to use an ugly cookie banner for our analytics.

Fathom Analytics sells software, not data

If you aren’t paying for the product, you are the product. That’s why we charge a fair price for our software because we feel it’s a more honest business model. By doing this we can offer things like forever data retention, and we actually listen to our customers to build features they want.

Fathom Analytics keeps your data forever

UA data is being permanently deleted some time after July 1, 2023. GA4 only stores your data for up to 14 months. With Fathom Analytics, we have unlimited data retention on our dashboards, so you can quickly see all historical data without limit.

Fathom Analytics doesn’t require a course to learn

There are countless courses and certifications to learn how to use Google Analytics, and most just scratch the surface. With Fathom, all your data appears in a single-page dashboard that’s easy to understand and filter without months of training.
