Log Files and Stats

Like many blogging platforms I use a statistical tracking package, in this case Google Analytics. This stores information such as visitor location, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, search queries, internet service provider (ISP),search  referrals, exit and visited pages, platform used, date/time stamp, track user’s movement in the whole, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. This now includes absence of search queries (keywords) displayed in Google Analytics, for searchers that are logged into Google Search. I use stats to help improve this blog by trying to create targeted content, to improve search engine visitors experience so that they can gain relevant information.
