Welcome to the latest edition of the website intelligence news roundup!

There's also some fresh industry awards, past webinars and interviews that you can rewatch or read at your leisure, and some marketing advice columns to digest.

Platform Updates

Unfortunately, we haven't got many new features for you to play with this month.

For the development team, June's really been about focusing on the underlying infrastructure and deploying some crucial technical updates and bug fixes that will ensure that TWIPLA runs smoother and more reliably than ever before.

However, there are a few things you'll be interested in, and we've outlined those below.

At TWIPLA, we're obviously pretty big on optimizing data collection within privacy restrictions. Before, this meant that visitors needed to opt in to a cookie banner when TWIPLA was running in one of our three lower-threshold data privacy modes.

But thanks to our dual tracking code options, you now have the opportunity to also collect a legitimate data fundament on opt-outs in line with Maximum Privacy Mode logic.

And to help you understand which tracking code option is right for you, we've been busy updating the tracking code section of the platform. Jump in, and you'll now find updated tooltips that will hopefully make everything a little clearer for you.

Our Traffic Structure module just got even more powerful!

From now on, you can force any website visitor session to be catagorized under a specific traffic channel or category by adding custom GET parameters to your landing page URL.

GET parameters are key-value pairs added to the URL that help track and categorize traffic sources, and it's very easy to set up.

Simply add the parameters to the end of your URL, with the possibilities being email, paid, search, social, and unknown.

Here are some examples of GET parameters you might use:

  • ?_channel=email&_category=gmail
  • ?_channel=social&_category=facebook
  • ?_channel=paid&_category=google
  • ?_channel=search&_category=google

Just remember to always include both the channel and category inputs.

So define your own parameters, add them to your landing page URLs, and our platform will handle the rest. Try it out! It'll ensure better session categorization and enable TWIPLA to return better traffic insights!

New Platform Awards

TWIPLA has won over 65 analytics industry awards since 2019 for everything from functionality and useability to pricing and customer support. It's obviously something that we're rather proud of, and we've added another two to the trophy cabinet this month.


TWIPLA has won yet another web analytics award from SoftwareSuggest for the quality of the customer support we provide to our enterprise clients. It means that we've now won 11 industry awards from this popular software review portal since 2019.

We're now also recognized as one of the best digital marketing analytics software options for 2024 by Tekpon. They're a popular B2B SaaS portal that connects people with the right software, and provide unbiased reviews from real users.

Website analytics obviously plays a crucial role for marketers, enabling them to evaluate online performance, refine digital strategies, and reach concrete business objectives.

Although Google Analytics has long been the market leader, its supremacy is being challenged due to tool limitations, complexity, and a whole host of legal issues.

In an upcoming - and belated - Webinar, Cookieless Tech founder Alberto di Risio, an authority on the subject, will join TWIPLA's Dragos Gal to discuss innovative technologies that are prompting Google Analytics users to explore other options. They'll compare this platform with advanced website intelligence alternatives, and talk through some unexpected data points that marketers should focus on in 2024.

This free Webinar is taking place Wednesday, July 17th @ 16:00 CET. So you don't miss out, feel free to head over to the LinkedIn event page and register today!

Succeeding in eCommerce within the boundaries set by data privacy laws requires building an effective, cookieless martech stack that includes both store analytics and customer experience personalization.

It sounds like there's a lot to get your head around, but it's more about making the right software decisions and knowing how to use them. To help, TWIPLA and ODOSCOPE teamed up for a one-off Webinar to provide advice on how online sellers can enhance their eCommerce strategies by leveraging data anonymity tools, cookieless AI analytics, and other advanced privacy-first technologies that are shaking up current business practices.

In this engaging hour-long conversation, ODOSCOPE's Matthias Bettag and TWIPLA's Dragos Gal delved into these subjects. They discussed the challenges and opportunities presented by these innovations and shared some insightful case studies. The session concluded with a Q&A segment, giving participants the chance to have their voices heard.

Devrims Techtalk: Dragos Discusses Going Cookieless

Our resident expert Dragos has had a busy June by anyone's estimate, but he still found time to sit down for an interview with managed cloud hosting providers Devrims. They discuss his background, the evolving SaaS marketplace, and strategies that we're finding particularly effective in the current climate.

If you've read this far into the news roundup, you'll have already learned about the update to the Tracking Code module of the TWIPLA platform. But our dual tracking code system is something we're proud of, and we think that any business will find it particularly useful.

Simply put, it enables businesses to collect legitimately data on ALL visitors - regardless of the privacy settings that our users activate or the consent preferences of their visitors.

When the alternative Non-Consent Tracking Code is installed, it enables businesses that run TWIPLA in a lower-threshold data privacy mode to collect data in line with the active privacy mode for visitors that accept tracking, AND a core data fundament in line with Maximum Privacy Mode principles from those that don't.

It's really a groundbreaking concept in the emerging privacy-first website intelligence sector, and we've written a new article explaining how it works.

Can you believe that cybercrime costs the global economy $9.22 trillion annually? That's a startling figure but it's still growing, and experts believe that it will be sitting at nearly $14 trillion before 2028.

And unfortunately, no one is safe. 43% of these target small businesses, and more than half of these companies close down as a result of the attack.

This makes it a pressing issue to prepare for, and one effective way is to consider data storage security. This blog is a great introduction to the subject. In it, you'll learn more about the importance of secure data storage. It also runs through the strengths of different infastructure types, as well as the features that you should look for in the options available.

Andrew Gerhardt at marketing consultancy firm Loop Horizon has discovered that Apple Safari now blocks the tracking pixels needed by Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target when in Private Browsing mode.

This is no small thing. Private Browsing is the default mode for Safari mobile users who on their own make up 15% of all website traffic in 2024. This news article runs through how Adobe's suite of software has been affected, and what this means for businesses that rely on these tools.
