Hi everyone,

Last week I stumbled across a cool web tool - gvisit.com. It's a free tool based on Google Maps, and it lets you get a map showing where visitors to your website are from. The instructions say there is about an hour delay between a visitor and the display, but in my experience, it's more like three. That's really only a problem when you first get it going.

It can't pinpoint an exact location - it's very rough. When I visit my site from home, it shows up as being from a town 30 miles away. It guesses your location based on the IP address of the visitor - most of consumer connections to the internet have dynamic IP addresses anyway.

It doesn't violate privacy anymore than a regular website either - IP addresses are logged by most web servers. This just tabulates that information graphically.

When you register with gVisit, they give you a one-line javascript to put in your page, and a URL for seeing the visitor map. You can put a link to your map in your webpage if you want.
