This sort of cPanel site normally comes with basic visitor information, and I can see that it believes some visitors go to, which is encouraging! It lends further proof that friends and family actually read the site when they tell me they do.

However, I am curious if Lor’Avvu is being viewed at all by strangers! And I wonder if I can find out if some visitors are robots. So as of today this site has activated an additional tracking software. It’s called Matomo and it has a reputation for being respectful of data. I also let people know about it in the Privacy Policy.

Here is what Matomo says about itself, which is cool:
