Oh boy, how I have come to love and hate Google Analytics. Love, because it offers me incredible amounts of information about my business. Hate, because I can’t resist the urge to check it every five minutes during the business day (i.e. when I’m working the job that, oh, pays a salary). But its given me some preliminary stats which I’ll share with you all. Note that these are for approximately 48 hours during the weekend in summer, which is about as cruddy a time as you could possibly pick to meet my customers.
