Where do blog readers come from? Check gVisit

ResearchBuzz pointed me to a new blog tracking tool with their post See Where Your Site Visitors Are Coming From With gVisit.

Want to know where your site visitors are in meatspace? (Meatspace: The "real world", where people live, as opposed to online space where they everybody drifts around reading blogs and playing Furious George.) gVisit can tell you, with a Google Map! Check it out at .

Enter your site name and URL, and gVisit will give you a line of JavaScript. Paste it into your site, and they'll start generating a map for you showing the locations of your last 20 visitors. Maps are updated hourly.

If you make a donation (of "any amount" as the site says) you'll be able to see the last 100 visitors instead of the last 20.

The major downside is that tracking 20 or even 100 visitors in an hour will tell you only so much. You can license the service however; for more details check out .

So I signed up and I think I will play with this a bit before I donate. Check out the map.
