How does web beacons work? if you have asked the question any time and would like to know still, read on !
If you are looking forward to know how does an analytics tag work or what is a web beacon, this post might help you.
A web beacon is usually a 1X1 pixel transparent image which gets embedded into a web page or an email message which acts as a way to exchange data between the client and the web analytics data collection server.
Lets see how web beacons really work and transfer data to the server.
Let me explain what this code does.
In first 4 lines of this code, few statcounter account related variables are being initialized (such as sc_project, sc_invisible etc). The last part of the code is inclusion of an external js file from the statcounter.
The code from statcounter does many things. For example it finds out the referring URL to the current page you are viewing, the page’s URL, title of the page, your browser’s resolution, your IP address etc etc).
