I am happy to report that it is possible to report back to visitor’s their own information. This is achieved with two AJAX calls to two separate PHP files: one to obtain the IP address of the current visitor, and the other to retrieve the Matomo information related to the retrieved IP address. What makes this work is the
method. It took me two full days to discover it, but it does exist. I will post a link to its power as soon as the page is complete. First I must come to terms with my host server about another issue.
It is a win-win relationship for entrepreneur and visitor. For, it provides the entrepreneur with what he needs to succeed, and shares this success directly with his visitors by serving as a mirror to their own behavior. It also plays up to the visitor’s vanity and thus discourages him or her from opting out, thus avoiding crushing government oppression.
Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!
p.s. It is not perfect, but maybe with a timestamp it will be near perfect.
