If you're currently using #GoogleAnalytics, you are helping Google spy on your own site's visitors.
To protect your visitors' privacy, try switching to an independent free open source alternative like #Matomo:
The self-hosted version is FLOSS and (of course) free of charge, while the managed hosting version is a paid account.
It's GDPR compliant and by default respects "Do Not Track".
You can also follow the developers on here:
@switchingsocial To everyone mentioning that no analytics is better than using Matomo, I want to bring an example why although you are technically right, I still think there is a very good reason to use Matomo (and that's why I am working on it):
Compare www.oebb.at with www.bahn.de (Austrian and German Train companies). One would expect the sites to be similar, but the former doesn't include any third-party requests and only uses a Matomo instance hosted on ÖBB servers. The latter includes at least seven different third-party domains that my adblocker blocks. (Same is valid for their apps)
While both are tracking me, I prefer ÖBB as everyone who gets the data has to follow all privacy laws I can influence.
One thing I learned is that there are always better/more private/more open alternatives, but just because one hasn't reached the perfect solution doesn't mean that getting closer to it isn't an improvement. LineageOS uses GA, but I am still glad for their amazing work. My phone requires binary blobs to work, but is still more "free" than most other alternatives.
