Google Analytics

I've been using Google Analytics (G-Anal for short:P) to track my blog for quite a while. It's a extremely well made piece of software, as you would expect from Google. The amount of information that can be collected is quite amazing. But what's even more amazing is the simple and effective manner these information are presented. The following images show some of the stuff G-Anal can do, the ones where I can understand at least. They have various summaries (called dashboards) for different types of roles involved in a website (executive for the CEO/Managers, webmasters and marketeer for the marketing people). So far, the elligibility to use the software is by invitation. You just need to go to the website and register your interest. After that? Just wait:) After 1-2 months, you'll get an invitation:)
Main dashboard, (clockwise from top left) showing visits/pageviews, new vs returning visitors, referrals and geogrphical overlay of visitors
Webmasters would like to know which pages are more popular

Looks like a bit of promoting at Project Petaling Street helped my website quite a bit:)
