Behind the scenes with gAnalytics

visits by city

Its been just over a month since I started using Google Analytics to learn more about how people interact with boilr.  In the last 33 days, 1167 visitors have come to the site from 380 cities in 54 countries.

The numbers themselves are unimportant, but the wealth of data collected about each hit is rather interesting.  Site visits can be sorted by location, browser, operating system, time spent, and a variety of other criteria.

This free web-dev service offers the usual G pros and cons – pretty powerful and useful, but a bit frightening re: privacy as well.
