Google Analytics...

Do you guys know about Google Analytics? It might be the best thing that's happened to my blog since this post. It's a program that allows you to find out all types of great information about who's looking at your blog or web page. All you have to do is paste the HTML code into your template and you can embark upon a magical journey of reader information. For instance, because of Google Analytics, I know that:

  • During the month of May, 26.88% of everybody who visited my blog did so by linking directly to it. 10.34% came from Puddles' blog. 5.21% came here from Marko's blog.

  • The top 5 things searched for in Google that led here were Josh Treece blog, Weird Al stuck in the drive thru, we've all done terrible things to each other Spiderman 3, the landlord Will Ferrell, and Alanna Pearson. Not quite sure how they would end up here by searching for Alanna...

  • 47.64% of everybody that reads my blog does so by using Internet Explorer. 2nd place? Firefox. 3rd? Safari.

  • I have readers from North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and Asia. But no Africa... Hey Africa! What gives?

  • 24.32% of everybody that visited did so for the first time ever.

  • Seriously, if you have a blog or a webpage, you have to get this...

    I have been on Google Analytics since January and I check it all the time. Allison thinks I am such a dork when I tell her how many people were on my blog each day! (And when I check to see that I am still the first Julie Hibbard to show up on Google!)
    You will be hooked on the analytics Josh...I check it all day long...
    and say, "who in South Carolina read my blog and why?"
