Like the bazillions of other website owners out there, I use Google Analytics on apocalyptic thoughts.com
Basically, Google Analytics is a piece of software that grabs data about my visitors (you) to allow mee to see what types of visitors come to the website.
What does Google Analytics record?
- What website you came from to get here.
- How long you stay for.
- What kind of computer you’re using.
- And quite a bit more.
What do I do with your data?
The tracking information allows me to better understand the kind of people who come to my site and what content they’re reading. This allows me to make better decisions about design and writing.
Occasionally, I will compile aggregate statistics about the number of visitors this site receives and browsers being used. No personally identifying data is included in this type of reporting.
All of my activity falls within the bounds of the Google Analytics Terms of Service.
Want to opt out of tracking?

I don’t know what this means but I’m supposed to disclose the below.
- http://www.apocalypticthoughts.wordpress.com and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how this website’s ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to the site.
Seriously, this website just used google analytics for me to see how many people visit the site and where they come from. If I notice I have a huge influx of visitors from Texas, I’ll probably go look to see why Texas is loving on my website (or hating).
Any questions, feel free to message me. Don’t forget you can opt out as listed above!
