No Spythoughts on iThoughts

There and back again
If you have installed the Ghostery plugin for Firefox or Chrome (that I recommand a lot!), you can see that you’re spied on on nearly every site in the web. I just wanted you to know that don’t have to take any spying from ithoughts.de and also don’t have to endure any kind of advertising here.

All numbers I collect are collected serverside – maybe they’re not too accurate for that point, but when you’re not advertising, there’s also not much need for knowing exact numbers.

(Not that I really care, but if you’re interested: From what I can see for February, I got approximately 3000 views, with an approximate number of 8% coming from feedviews.)

  1. Much better is the Adblock plus addon and the requesst policy addon. Those are blocking all spies from the beginning. Sometimes it destroys the layout of a webpage but only if the css or whatever file is not on the same server.

  2. Tim,

    In your “Impressum” you’re mentioning using Google Analytics. I guess, that part is no logner needed. I use the noscript extension and I can’t see a script running google analytics on your site. So maybe you want to delete it.

  3. Hey thanks for the heads-up. I use a default text in the impressum ;-)

  4. hehe, saw you were linking to the impressum-generator thingy. Btw: I forgot to mention that I find that pretty cool you not using this full-scale analytics stuff. I mean, most of us are doing it for fun and not writing for-profit. There is also sound server side analytics software to keep it local but then you invest shedloads of time trying to dive through reports and behaviour patterns. In the end, I find the effort badly focused, so I rather invest the little time available on actual production.

    Cheers
