In truth, Google Analytics has always been a bit of a childish self-validation crutch. “Look how many visits I’m getting ma!” It doesn’t really serve a purpose for me. I design my site for everybody, so I don’t need to track where people are coming from. I design my site for every device, so I don’t need to track OS and Browser. I have zero interest in the awfully revealing demographic data that GA exposes. I really have no need to see real-time data on visitors. It’s all really for nothing.
