How a website may track you?
Most sites collect analytical data using services such as Google Analytics to help the owner of a website understand how their web page is being used.

Sites with share buttons from Facebook, Google+, and other social networks will also track each visitor that views the share button or a social network plugin. Users logged into these social services can be tracked and also share the pages through the services.

Many advertisers such as Google (DoubleClick) will track where their advertisement banners are displayed.

Ghostery
Ghostery is a browser tool available for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer, as well as a standalone app available for iOS. It scans the page for trackers – scripts, pixels, and other elements – and notifies you of the companies whose code is present on the webpage you are visiting. These trackers often aren’t otherwise visible and are often notdetailed in the page source code. Ghostery allows you to learn more about these companies and their practices, and block the page elements from loading if the user chooses.
