I have started learning Data Analytics through the course 'Learn R' on CodeCademy.
I made this graph, which turned out to be pretty cool.
@rzg Hey! GoAccess seems interesting. But, unfortunately, I don't have root access to the server.
Appreciate your input. Thanks.
@theDoctor Hey! I was not familiar with it. But I came to know about it through the previous comment on my post. Thank you for your suggestion. I will check out Plausible.
(3/3) So, could someone please help me figure this out? Should I track pageviews? Other metrics? And help with implementation.
Thanks a ton!
(2/3) My dilemma is this: On one hand, I want to keep my site minimalist and non-invasive, and I know that JS is not the best solution. But, on the other hand, I'd really like to know if my blogs are reaching people and making an impact.
I tried using Matomo Analytics. They offer multiple ways of implementing it: JS, which I probably shouldn't use and image based tracking (Sorry, I don't know the exact term), which I was unable to implement.
(1/3) 👋 Hey, Fediverse! I am in need of your inputs.
Some time ago, inspired by @luke, I launched my minimalist, privacy-friendly site with a blog. Everything has been working well. But, I'd like to be able to know the number of pageviews and perhaps the country of the readers, without invading the users' privacy.
Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....
When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.
@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
@greenpete Thanks for this update. I am new to web design. So, I am finding it difficult to diagnose the issue. But, I will definitely try to resolve it.
@greenpete Hey! That's odd. My site only uses HTML and CSS.
Could you give more info so that I can look into it?

Peter Joseph, Sandeep Maheshwari, Neil deGrasse Tyson, @luke ...
Learned basic HTML and CSS recently and launched my personal site with a minimalist web design.
It has been a very fulfilling experience!
