Ok, well to clarify things and to educate you all on what is going on.
- Google Analytics (the Urchin code that chinaco is talking about) is not used to determine relevant ads. It is a service provided by Google to help understand the traffic to a site. I used to use Urchin before they were acquired by Google and it's fantastic software. The issue is that it is very server intensive when it processes the log files. Google bought Urchin and now provides that for free and keeps the servers running faster because we don't need to keep traffic logs in order to understand the traffic of the site. Not only does it prevent slowdowns when the logs are being processes but it also helps disk read/write because the log file does not have to be written to on every page load (to create the log that gets parsed). Google Analytics is a fantastic tools (and free service from Google) and I would recommend anyone who runs a website and wants to understand the traffic the site is getting.

The Google Adsense spider is what reads a page and determines the what relevant ad is displayed on that page. It has noting to do with Google Analytics.

As we have discussed I do need to put a site privacy policy in place and will work on getting that put in place in September. I can assure you that no private information is every sold to 3rd parties and that I take security very seriously.

I claim absolute and complete ignorance on the subject, but evidently free tampons are available for those of you who missed out.

Couple of years ago while certifying for my concealed weapons permit I popped in the eraplugs before our range time. It had been years since I used ear plugs and I was amazed at the peaceful state that overtook me upon their insertion I turned to my friend who was taking the class with me and asked "I wonder if I could wear these at work" the look on his face and my understanding that the plugs were flourescent orange quickly brought me back to reality.
