Tracking website users

social and technical limitations

Debian's website and wiki produces megabytes of logs per day, but noone actually looks on them. Also i often hear the website content sometimes is hard to find.

  • Could we use tracking information to restructure our websites to make content better findable?
  • I wonder how far we could go with tracking users, without collecting to much personal information about our users.
  • Is annonymizing the logs and using that for tools like piwik, awstats, webalizer enough?
