I’ve been considering doing this for a while. The controversy surrounding Apple’s decision to enable third-party ad blockers in iOS 9 made me think more about the underlying tracking that (to me) represents one of the most objectionable elements of online advertising. As a result, I have removed Google Analytics from this site.
What does this mean to Tantramar Interactive Inc. directly? Not much. There have never been ads on this site (nor do I ever imagine there will be), and the simple fact is that I pay almost no attention to what Google Analytics has to say about the traffic on here. I don’t need to justify this site’s existence to anyone, and I don’t particularly care about any insights that might be gleaned.
An occasional peek at the server logs will be more than enough to satisfy my curiosity.
