Statistics and Analytics

I never thought I'd become such a metrics nut but I have a confession to make. I use several different site statistics free services like GoStats, Sitemeter and of course Bloglines, Technorati and Feedburner stats to keep track of how this blog is doing, how people a discovering it, what are they reading, etc etc.

However ever since I managed to get my Google Analytics working I don't think I'll even use Clicky, forget GoStats and Sitemeter. The analytics from Google gives one so much sophisticated data that ideally one should be using it for e-commerce sites, not for blogs.

I am totally blown away at the way Google can give away such services for free. This application makes even Gmail look simple !
