Changes to Cookie Counts in Cookiepedia

cookiepedia-stats

In the last few days we have been making some significant changes to the way we recognise and record certain types of cookies in the knowledge base that powers our site all about cookies – Cookiepedia.

The result has been a big re-calculation of the prevalence of different types of cookies on the websites we have scanned.  In particular we now believe that the percentage of cookies involved in visitor tracking and targeting – nearly 60% of all cookies – is much more representative of the true picture.
