Long time since I did the stats of this page. Not because I’m ashamed of anything, or because I need bragging rights, but because most people just ignore them.
I know I do.
This time, I thought I’d try the recent tool from google, namely Google Analytics. I think they might have a better way to track unique visitors than tools like webalizer. If you have any comments or experience with website statistics, and what to make of them, please comment below the post. Thanks to my cousin for the tip!

I’ve never really trusted Webalizer, but I found their Country list quite amusing. It made traffic look like a fight between US internet cafés and Russian Federation spies. Unfortunately my host has disabled that feature on my behalf.
I’ve only begun to discover the possibilities of Analytics, such as filtering and tracking defined goals. But you don’t have to worry. I’d have to be commited to a mental institution before I put ads or banners on this page.
Well, except for that one.
