Good stuff, Barry -- congrats on the great job you and the gang have done again in '06. Interesting to see that you have almost 10% of visitors at 800x600. I only get about 4% at that resolution, FWIW.

Possibly because I draw some visits from the news engines... I dunno.

That's a weird top time zone. How can the top users live in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean?

This is better than no stats at all, but the REAL serious flaw is the lack of referrer keywords and search terms. This is essential - because it illustrates how algos are prioritizing the variables that influence the SERPs It really is important that all SEO and Web 2.0 Bloggers reveal their stats. There is no practical reason to hide them anymore http://seoptimization.blog.com/1221628/

Go +0200! Now that I'm in Jerusalem, expect to see us at least in the #4 spot come next year. Happy New Years, Barry.

Since I am in Google and Yahoo News, the keyword data is not on par with other sites, so there is no reason for me to share them. Number one keyword was google, now is that fair?

Nice one. Google news can attract more traffic if people updates their site regularly.
