@ton “Sites which interest cohorts will be calculated on
All sites with publicly routable IP addresses that the user visits when not in incognito mode will be included in the POC cohort calculation.”
The confusion here appears to be:
1. Whether visiting your site is used to profile people
2. Whether your site actually makes use of cohort data via the JS call
The above quote says to me that the profiling occurs unless the site opts out.
@ton That said, the ambiguity itself works in Google’s favour, not to mention that its implementation will, of course, be in line with its business model.
