Google Analytics - Where is my web traffic coming from?

Google Analytics is a powerful, and as always with Google, FREE web application for monitoring and reporting your website's statistics. 
If you have your own website, you need this tool.  It's VERY easy to use, if you have access to your website's HTML code.  Even if you have a web master, you can have them set this up for you in a few minutes flat.  Simply install a chunk of code on each page of your site you want tracked, log into the Analytics page, and you'll see an incredible amount of useful information about who visits your site, where from, how often, what they see, and how they find you. 
It's useful for understanding what actually brings users in to see your website so you can focus your design efforts in those areas.  You might be surprised what search keywords bring users in! 
It even tells you what amount of the traffic is actual humans, and what is from Search Engines.
