In case anyone is curious, that is a map of the first week of visitor locations on Godbit.com. The stat compilation hasn’t really started kicking in yet, and the site has only been online since Tuesday Nov. 15th, but it’s still cool to see the stats starting to roll in. If you want your own free stat tracking, go check out Google Analytics, and sign up. It’s really easy to add to your existing site. Surprisingly, it’s not titled Beta, probably because it’s just Urchin, recycled.
You’ll notice that among the dots from all over the world, there is a huge one on Boise, Idaho. That’s probably mostly me, logging in and out of the site, tweaking things on the forum, and making slight changes to Textpattern. I’m happy to say that this site finally looks perfect in every major browser, including Opera which was the toughtest to fix. Honestly, I don’t know why anyone would have ever used that browser. Now that they give it away free, it’s just one more headache to deal with on top of IE6.
I might write a tutorial later on as to how I went about creating a work-around for Opera’s bugginess, but for now I just wanted to show off Google Analytics, and the cool job it does of logging world-wide visitors. I’m not sure how it’s affected other stat tracking business, but I bet the guys over at Measure Map and Mint are getting a little nervous. Personally, I use Mint for my other site SonSpring.com, but I’m loving Google’s solution thus far for Godbit.
