How do you handle guest tracking?
Posted 02 August 2006 - 01:14 AM
I'm working on a system where I will set a unique cookie for each guest (or try to). I'm trying to decide if generating a random string is sufficient or if I should use an auto-increment value. If I use the random string, there there is the ever so slight possibility of a duplicate. If I use an auto-increment, then I'm going to have so many non-used numbers it's not even funny (because every time there's a new hit to the home page I would attempt to insert a cookie, which would be an auto increment value).
So, how do you or how would you handle this?
