Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
While my site isn't busy I can clearly see the same user come back several times with a different session ID, beacuse they're browser doesn't accept cookies.
Has anyone found a fairly reliable way to tie these visits together and say - yes it's the same person/session.
It would be easy on a quiet system to tie up the same IP address, agent, browser details etc. But when it gets more busy it could be someone else.
I know it's a non-cookie user and could reflect that in my stats, which is maybe the best option...
Any soloutions here?
but beware of the limitations you can imagine. http is stateless and cookie based sessions are only a little work-around for that. so each request is a "new" request.
