I hate when google doesn't show some of referrals or searched keywords because of privacy of visitors.
Is there any good alternative with out these bullshits?
 
I am also looking for an alternative because i cant seem to see the stats of current day.. either its realtime or some past days but not current day. or maybe i dont know how to do that ..

You cannot see current day, as far as I am aware. Same as in GWC. The only thing I have found is local stats from your hosting company or use the Google Analytics plugin if you are using WP, then at least you can have basic stats on Today if you want them.

THis thing is quite annoying man.. I dont want to wait whole day to see progress of my page :p
 
Statcounter is good, but it won't show that data either, cause it's the search engine which hides it, not analytics itself.
 
Clicky is solid, but none of them will show that data since it is blanked by the search engine itself before it reaches the stat counter.

Nope, SSL encrypted searches on Google and lot on Bing mean whatever they sell you on NOBODY has the data. A lot of companies trying to give you keywords related to what your site is ranking for, but it is just an estimate and NEVER accurate.
 
It's Google's search engine who hides referral data relating to searches performed over SSL. It hides it from Google Analytics and any other analytics software you may use. There are some workarounds, but none of them is perfect: https://blog.kissmetrics.com/unlock-keyword-not-provided/

You can try Semruch and Ahrefs also, and see what they know about your website's organic traffic.

No analytics will show those data. Beside GA, I prefer super user friendly Clicky and old school Statcounter.

Ok this is my case.
I buy traffic from a guy who promote my website on reddit by my own URL shortening service.
It means he post my URLshorting links on reddit and when people click on that they will go to my money website.

I want to know how many of clicks are really from reddit, or if he is cheating and sending traffic from bots or buy bulk/skimmed traffic
The GA shows most of people from reddit as Direct and I dont know why

On above it shows 5,726 people visited my website directly, Maybe 726 people visited and the rest of 5,000 is from reddit but why GA didnt include that in Social tab and assume these people get into my website directly?

The shortening service is not passing the referral properly as most shortening services don't do. This is common problem.
However if you log in to the service you use, you should be able to see the statistics they collect. Most services actually collect stats on visits.
 
Privacy settings in the browser will also prevent the referrer string from being sent, but it shouldn't account for that many.
 
Matomo (in the past known as Piwik). You can even install it on your own server.
 
I try to stay away from Google's products as much as possible.

Big fan of russian Yandex Metrica.

If you are using shortening service, they most likely have their own analytics in place. Bit.ly has it. Or Pretty Links WordPress plugin also.

So check that instead of GA.
