The big question now is, how do I use this power for the purpose of good instead of evil? I want to have it on every page, but that just sounds ridiculous (or is it ? hmm…). My blog has the potential of having the most traffic, so for now I should probably put it here, and see how it goes.
I do have some constructive criticism. First, you can’t block yourself from counting as a user, so each time you go checking your site to see from where the latest visitors have hailed, you become another hit yourself. To get around this you can simply NOT put the RSS feed right on the page itself as i have done, or go to the gvisit map page , so that is probably not fair. What would be helpful is if the time displayed in the feed was the time that the user hit the site and not the last time the list was updated. It kinda looks like everyone came to the site at the same time which is of course false.
Regardless, its amazing. Go check it out, copy the code to your site of choice, and then write these guys a big fat cheque to donate to this amazing service.
