View Full Version : Very hard I think - Checking if user bookmarks a website. Possible?

Greetings guys!

I think it's impossible to know if visitor has bookmarked your website, but if someone has any ideas how to check this, please any help is appreciated! :)

It's not possible because being able to do that would be an invasion of the user's privacy.

Okay. Thanks.

I got the idea from Awstats where it says that "Bookmarked X Times"...

This explains how they guess at it. (http://awstats.sourceforge.net/docs/awstats_glossary.html#AddToFavourites)

This is a patch to fix a bug in that functionality: Add to Favorites (patch) (http://www.internetofficer.com/awstats/add-to-favorites.html)

omg nice, but that method is really assuming/guessing - not detecting! :P

Right. Like I said, finding this out for sure without asking the user is not possible.
