I’ve been wanting to remove any kind of tracking from my site for a while and decided today to just go ahead and do it. I had been using Google Analytics and Adsense but now it’s all gone.
As a personal blog having analytics and ads on the site just slowed the experience down and didn’t actually do anything meaningful for me. I am now back to super quick load times and no tracking.
In the time that I had it enabled it made me less than £5 and it just wasn’t worth it, I also didn’t want Google to be tracking my readers.
So I’m back to better load times with just PayPal left on the site to enable me to accept donations.
