Samizdat will need a way of measuring and reporting on how effective it is. That's a complicated problem. On one hand Samizdat will be used by readers in oppressive regimes, and their privacy and safety is crucial.
On the other hand, if Samizdat cannot report on its effectiveness, how will website admins know it works at all?.. And how will organizations know it is worth deploying.
Possible approaches to this problem:
- keeping stats in Gun
- using Google Analytics or some other major provider (bleh!)
- using a Matomo instance on a different IP address that is not likely to be blocked
- would it make sense to have global Samizdat stats (that is, for all Samizdat-enabled sites)?
