I've just finished a wiki page documenting how to call a local piwik.org web analytics server for page tracking in Liferay.

Wiki page can be found here: http://www.liferay.com/community/wiki/-/wiki/Main/Adding+Piwik+Web+Analytics+to+Liferay

Very detailed and useful information indeed :-)

But I was also wondering as to the answer to the question posted on the Wiki:

Could you elaborate on the rationales behind using server side over client side tracking?

Thanks,

Well, unfortunately I don't seem to get notified of comments on the wiki pages, otherwise I would have answered...

I did post an answer out there, but to summarize...

Our Piwik server is an internal resource and is not exposed on the net. We could not do client side tracking w/o exposing the Piwik server, which we don't want to do.

Doing server-side tracking, we can keep our Piwik server hidden from the world and still gather the metrics we need.
