This site uses the WordPress Jetpack Plugin (it comes with WordPress blogs as basic). Through this, I can tell what countries visitors are from, where they come from, and what pages they look at. These are provided as three separate statistics and update every three minutes. It doesn’t link the three data points together, but instead will give me a breakdown of countries, pages, and sources. You can find out more about the Jetpack plugin here.
I also use Google’s Webmaster Tools (also known as the Search Console). This is mainly for me to manage how each page is seen and crawled; however, it does give me some usage statistics. This includes being able to look at the queries people use to find this blog, the pages they find on Google, and the countries those users come from. You can find out more about Google’s Search Console and the data it allows me to see here.

You can unsubscribe from the bottom of every email, and this will remove you from the mailing list; however, if you struggle to do this for any reason, or are unsure if you are unsubscribed, then feel free to drop me an email and I will manually remove you from the list.
A note from Luke about this blog –
I am just a lone blogger, looking to share the love of board games, and nothing more. This blog is not currently monitised, and I do not seek to harvest data. Start Your Meeples really is just about board games and enjoying them.
Even though I don’t make money out of this blog, I have done my best to make it GDPR compliant in so far as my understanding of GDPR and the WordPress tools I have access to allow.
If you have any questions about this or anything else on the blog then please feel free to contact me. I am a friendly chap and will aim to answer your questions as quickly as possible.
