War of analytics: Matomo (former Piwik) vs AdBlock

№ 10144 В разделе "Sysadmin" от July 25th, 2019,

AdBlock (uBlock and others) trying to block loading of Matomo analytics scripts, so your monitoring can’t work. Now we will try to fix this problem.

PrivacyList applies 2 rules:

  • block matomo.js
  • block matomo.php?action_name=

As I found Matomo easily accepts file renaming of matomo.js. It gives to us ability just to rename file and forget about first block rule. For example, make symlink mamatomo.js -> matomo.js and rename in page script matomo.js to mamatomo.js.

But what you can with second rule? In page script just add symbol ? at the end of .php:

_paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'matomo.php?']);

In adblocker log window statistic urls looks approved to load:

Now you can see some additional statistics from users with adblockers.
