Google Analytics

I have read over and over how great Google Analytics is at giving detailed reports for free. I installed the scripts months ago but have never been able to see the reports. I have repeatedly double checked that the script was in the correct place on the main page but not change. Well I decided today I was going to figure out why I never see reports and between double checking the script and doing some reading on their site I got it...Google Analytics doesn't like Opera. Now nothing on their site actually says that the screens can't be viewed in Opera, only that they can't be viewed in Safari but history has told me that often, not always but often, what you can't see in Safari you can't see in Opera either. Which is too bad since both are way cool browsers.

Well now that I know I have to check the site in Firefox I can better see who is visiting both of the sites. The mapping feature is very cool. *waves to the visitor from Hong Kong* This is going to be fun.

I was interested in using Google Analytics. Do you like their reports and results? Is it hard to install?

Their reports are pretty thorough, far better than some of the paid services I have looked at. The program is very easy to install, you just have a couple lines of the script to add to your main page...they do all the rest.
