Exciting News: We've Enhanced Your Privacy and User Experience!

We have some exciting news to share with you today that will improve your experience on our website and protect your privacy.

Today have DELETED Google Analytics from these forums (https://linuxcommunity.io/) and have no plans on adding any 3rd party traffic analytics to the forums. The content and the direction of these forums will be controlled by it’s members and thus the need for Google Analytics is just not there. This move has increased privacy for readers.

Secondly, on the linuxblog.io blog, we have replaced Google Analytics with Matomo, a privacy-friendly web analytics platform.

Why Matomo?

  3. User-Centric: Matomo is designed with you in mind. It helps us understand your preferences and behaviors on our website, allowing us to tailor our content to better suit your needs. This means a more personalized and enjoyable browsing experience for you.
  4. Data Control: Matomo puts you in control of your data. You can choose to opt-out of analytics tracking if you prefer not to participate. Your choices regarding data collection are respected and honored.
  5. Improved Performance: By switching to Matomo, we can better analyze our website’s performance and make necessary improvements to ensure faster load times and smoother navigation:
