Today to track a users visiting a web site there are multiple ways. In this blog I will try to cover the mainly used ones
A cookie is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser, which consist of name-value pairs.Cookies can be used to track internet users' web browsing habits and today the browsers allows the users to delete the cookies for privacy control too.
Similarly the users can be tracked using the server logs. Using the time stamp and also using the other details form the specific logs.
Asking user for a nick name and storing the user actions.
Using the machine ip to track the users though there is dynamic ip change.
Tagging the pages with js scripts and using single pixel technology.
