I run Privacy Badger in my browsers. It is currently detecting ZERO trackers on Voat.

It's a very clean site and shows that Atko is a webmaster that really cares about the users!

Nothing. I swear I was just an innocent bystander. In fact, I wasn't even there.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Most blockers also block Piwik. Also with the default settings Piwik won't track users who have DNT set.

One of the strengths of Piwik, though, is that you can invalidate a set of data and then repopulate it from server logs, so if they wanted to have real-time tracking they can do that via the javascript code, then at some point at night they can wipe out the day's info, have piwik crunch through the server logs and get a more accurate picture of their traffic.

There's mobile phones etc which often don't have adblocks etc to block those. And lots of people surf via mobiles and tablets nowadays.

For people who don't understand what this means:

  • An Analytics service is a service that tracks website statistics like how many users visited every day, which pages they visited, in which order they visited pages, etc.
  • Google Analytics is offered by Google and it stores all its data on Google's servers.
  • Piwik is a "hosted" service i.e. it's running on a server owned by the owner of the website, so the data is stored on the owners machine rather than on Google's machines.

Google scares me some times with the things they do. So many people are dependent on their many services, they can get away with all sorts of manipulation and spying.

Good on you for cutting the cord, and thank you for thinking about our privacy Atko.

Moving away from Google (spits) AND opting to use an open-source replacement. Well done, and much thanks!

The reason and effect is Voat is trying to reduce the amount of info that google can gather on you. You should be grateful =D.
