Ringo's World uses Google Analytics to help improve the areas of subjects that are written about on my site. Although the guidance on the EU Cookie Law states that sites should ask their visitors to Opt-In, I feel that Google Analytics is essential to the running of this site and while some may argue that from the "users perspective" analytic cookies are not "essential", if the site becomes static or the subject matter goes off in the wrong direction, then it is the users that ultimately lose out.

I use Google Analytics to see how people interact with my site, which I use to help improve the content and make it easier to navigate. Google Analytics is used on many websites across the Internet and should you wish to block Google Analytics, they have created a browser add-on that allows you to opt-out of sending information from websites.
