WordPress.org is an amazing repository and one of the key components which made WordPress such a huge success. Having a plugin or theme on WordPress.org is a mixed blessing: while it can help a lot with distribution, something you will not get much of is your data. We know Rating-Widget’s number of downloads and estimated count of active installs, but who, what, where, how and why? Not so much.
Freemius will automatically add a user-friendly OAuth like opt-in screen, right after your plugin’s activation.
Measuring & Analyzing
We analyze the tracked data to prioritize missing features, improve user-experience and more.
We digest the insights and implement those into the plugin for continuous improvement.
What exactly is tracked?
• Rating-Widget state (active, inactive, uninstalled)
• Rating-Widget version
• Site URL
• WordPress admin name
• WordPress admin email
• WordPress locale (country + language)
• WordPress version
• PHP version
• MySql version
• List of installed plugins
• List of installed themes
If at some point after you agree to share the non-sensitive data, you wish to opt-out, and not provide it any longer – you can do so by visiting the Plugins page and clicking the “Opt-out” link next to the plugin’s column.
Thanks for being awesome!
