Tracking Users in Today's Web

Today is pretty much a Tracking Conversion Measurements type of day, so I thought I share a thread currently being discussed at Search Engine Watch Forums. The thread is named Protecting Cookies from Deletion, where member cline discusses that the problem of tracking not only is an issue of users deleting cookie's manually but the anti-spyware programs that delete them automatically.

In the thread, a discussion has begun about alternative methods of tracking. seomike says "I think browsers should just be given a unique ID that is sent in their headers." It is an interesting topic, many users do not want to be tracked. Advertisers want to track users. It is going to be interesting to see how tracking users will change in today's Web.
