Google is now tracking your visitors for advertising purposes even when you’re not using Google Analytics or Google Ads.

I took a closer look at Google’s FLoC initiative and how you can fight back and opt-out as a web user and a web developer

My switch from macOS to Linux

Why did I switch, what I like about @gnome and a guide on how you can try Linux too

It's so nice to see the marketing world embrace Plausible. Over the last few weeks, we've onboarded some of the world's leading brands. Our simple dashboard is now useful enough to be used by teams of digital analytics specialists within these large companies.

Plausible continues growing fast so we're considering to add a new person to the team. Any good advice / blog posts for bootstrappers when looking to hire the first employee?

It was great to speak to Nathan Latka and share the Plausible story! Some interesting questions! There's a video recording as well youtube.com/watch?v=GcLD7GcneQ

You cannot predict which post will do well and which won't.

I had doubts about this one. I felt it was too short, didn't have any insights or actionable advice.

In 3 days it got HN front page, 400 shares on Twitter, 1800+ upvotes on Reddit, many links...

I've gone optimistic and set the new traffic spike notification threshold at 100! 👀

I believe this is the first time I've ever had a post on the Hacker News front page for the full 24 hours 👀

Google AMP is dead! You no longer need to follow any artificial restrictions set by the adtech giant in order to rank plausible.io/blog/google-amp

Unlike Google’s other initiatives such as AMP and FLoC, the idea of page experience and Core Web Vitals is a sensible approach that will make the web a faster, more efficient and more secure place plausible.io/blog/page-experie

A shoutout to Mozilla and everyone working on Firefox! Thanks for making this beautiful, open source and privacy friendly browser 🙌

Amazing work by Telegram on their new web app! No installation needed and only 400 KB in size! Works on desktop and mobile too. That's how the web can be when teams care about speed and efficiency 🙌

I appreciate this WordPress philosophy overview. More products should be built with these principles in mind:

Works with little configuration and setup
Designed for the majority
Makes decisions, not options
Clean, lean and mean
Strives for simplicity

Nice post by Rand Fishkin on the first year of SparkToro. The quote below fits very well for Plausible too.

It's way harder to go from 0 to 1k MRR than it is to go from 10 to 20k! The work you do early on is what drives you forward.

We haven't changed anything in our approach recently so all the lessons we published for the 10k milestone are still relevant plausible.io/blog/growing-saas

Huge milestone for @plausible! Who would have thought a privacy-first, open source and bootstrapped project could get this far!? 🤯

Good way to wake up is with a traffic spike alert from @plausible in my inbox 😅
