Nippleworkers of the world, unite!

The nippleworks blog has Google Analytics set up.  If you ever create a web page, I highly suggest it, it's kind of fun, not to mention really useful for knowing who your audience is.  Here are a few interesting tidbits from the service:
-We've got a regular visitor from Milton Keynes, UK which according to Wikipedia has a great but underutilized bike pathway system.
-Someone visits regularly from Zurich.  As mechanical engineers, we're big fans of the Swiss :-)
-A few visitors from the Milan area.  Any connection to our favorite euro marquee - Bianchi?
-Lots of hits from NYC.  Perhaps the Snob is listening in?
-Big US fan bases in Portland, Minneapolis and Gainsville, Florida.  One visitor from Aspen, CO (a favorite camping spot for the nippleworks staff)
-Also several visitors from Germany, Australia and Montreal

Drop us a comment and let us know what you think!

Google Analytics is great! I've used it to make sure my wedding website wasn't getting outside traffic.

I didn't want any wedding crashers poaching my big day. It was successful as far as I could tell. However, I did see Owen Wilson in Hawaii... Hmmm...

I just added it to the Snack. Thanks for the tip. I had another but stopped looking at it since getting the Feedjit. This, however, seems to give you more control

I don't think it can give you statistics on a certain IP address. That would be cool. Then I could tell if our visitor from Wisconsin was a Trek employee!

I have another service that does show IP. Let me see if I can find it at home this evening.

Hmmmm, so if I am getting alot of hits from Bethel, CT, I wonder if that's people from Cannondale. I actually know a few people that work over there.
