This website contains no Google Analytics or other similar visitor tracking systems. No Disqus comments widgets. And definitely no “Like” buttons for different social networks.
Those tools make website owners' life much easier, however their business model of user data trading is extremely unethical in my opinion.
I respect my readers enough to not use those tools, while staying blind regarding the website popularity and traffic sources. That is a sacrifice I could make as an independent website owner. If you like my articles - spread those in social networks, Reddit, Hacker News, etc.
