analytics anticipation

Yesterday Google released Analytics, a free web traffic analysis service. (Well, it’s completely free to AdWords users and capped at 5 million monthly pageviews for those who aren’t).

Based on the amount of moderated comments I wade through here every day I’m convinced that the majority of the traffic is from blog spam. With that in mind I just couldn’t pass up a chance to check out the spammer’s handywork in those fancy Flash based graphs Analytics offers. Unfortunately, it seems I’m not the only one to think I have a site that would look good in a pie chart. While the service mentions it should take 12 hours or so to start getting report results most folks are still sitting at a “waiting for data” status.
