I've just updated to IE10 and have therefore tried to find out what the state of play is about 'Do Not Track'. After 45 minutes of searching and reading I'm confused.
I can find no announcements from Google on the subject. I've read that Apache say they are not going to honour this directive, but I don't know what this means in practice.
DNT is turned on in IE10 by default.
Does this mean that Analytics will not show the visit?
Or does it mean that the visit will be recorded as a hit but with no other metrics (keyword, entry page, user location, time on site etc) - like a global 'not provided'?
And if the site runs on Apache (as virtually all of the ones I'm involved in do) does this mean that tools other than Analytics, that rely on the server logs instead, will be unaffected?
A 'DNT for Dummies' guide would be much appreciated :)
