Latest Google Maps Hack: Locate Your Visitors

The latest Google Maps hack enables you to (very roughly) identify the location of your site visitors, based on their IP address. It’s called gVisit, and that’s pretty much all I know about it. gVisit creators–you need an About page. You can check out where some of my recent visitors have come from. Okay, who’s reading my site from Upper Marlboro, Maryland? Is that even a real place?

Incidentally, O’Reilly, let me know if you want me to write Google Map Hacks–I really dug Google Hacks. What am I talking about? The thing’s probably already at the presses.

    Upper Marlboro, Maryland, USA is in fact a real place. Tobacco is one of the big crops in Upper Marlboro.

    Might be me. I’m not in Upper Marlboro… it’s the next county over, but you never know. :)

    It doesn’t show England, yet I’ve been reading your blog almost daily for at least a year.
    Excellent blog, by the way!
