I am analyzing myself to no end- UPDATED

I have couple of counters throughout the site. I look at them everyday, but not obsessing (yet). I use the Cluster Maps and Google Analytics.

Here are some of my visitation statistics from around the world.

United States (US) 464
United Kingdom (GB) 30
Canada (CA) 4
China (CN) 3
Russian Federation (RU) 2
South Africa (ZA) 1
Lithuania (LT) 1
Finland (FI) 1
Ukraine (UA) 1
Bulgaria (BG) 1
Israel (IL) 1
Australia (AU) 1
India (IN) 1
Romania (RO) 1

And here are some stats for the US based readers.

1. Illinois 165 - I read myself a lot

2. New York 19 - Relatives and parents surfing when at work

3. New Jersey 10 - Hi Mom! Hi Dad! Hi, Blogger!

4. Alaska 3 - Only a couple of bloggers I know come from Alaska (Welcome, Jim)

5. California 2 - I know a couple of people from California and they would be from Orange and San Jose area (is SF San Hose area?)

6. Florida 2 - not sure! but Welcome anyways!

7. Washington 2 - I think I might know a blogger, but not sure.

9. Wisconsin 1 - That was me from Lake Geneva maybe

10. Minnesota 1 - I got only couple of friends in Minnesota

11. Ohio 1 - Not a Buckeye fan, but Welcome!

12. Michigan 1 - No clue (yet)

It's too bad Analytics can't give me a time/area visitation correlation

Also, it is strange that some of my readers from Utah, Texas, and other states are not registering in the Analytics, although they are shown in the cluster maps.

It seems that most of my traffic either accessed directly, through blogspot, or through my brother's site.

And here are the searches that landed people on mys site.

1. chaif "real world" album 1
2. credit karma sucks 1
3. of mice and men versimilitude 1
4. people who collect weird things and why 1
5. vladimir vavilov assa movie 1
6. yarmolka 1

Welcome one welcome all!

I have just subscribed to SiteMeter. And so far it looks much more detailed than analytics.

SiteMeter Basic was much less useful to me than Analytics (although it does provide tons of information for each visitor). I heard people who pay for advanced service praise it, though.

Konstantin, I don't know but it's possible I don't register in Analytics because I usually read your site through Bloglines, my RSS feed aggregator. Just a thought...

That's a possibility. It' wouldn't register unless you specifically accessed the webpage.
