Self-hosted analytics

I currently embed my own analytics scripts powered by the open source software Matomo. My Matomo server is configured to respect your privacy and doesn't do anything crazy. It's really just a convenient way for me to get more in-depth stats than I could easily get from Apache, and in a nicer interface than most log parsers. The following privacy-conscious configuration options are enabled:

  • Anonymizing the last two bytes of your IP address, so even I can't see anyone's full IP.
  • Stripping query parameters from referrer URLs to avoid capturing any information about you if you are referred here from another site that keeps identifying info in its URLs.
  • Raw data is deleted after 30 days and only aggregate data is kept long-term.
  • Do not track headers are respected.
