I think Google Analytics might be too high tech. I've tried to explore all that G.A. provides, but I prefer the city, state, & map feature of each individual hit (including IP address.)

Sitemeter wasn't sure how to attach to Class Creator. Can Sitemeter code be dropped in the same space as we drop Google Analytics? Thanks.

Yes. Anything you insert in the Google Analytics box gets appended to every page of your site automatically.

Hmmm, what's the chance of TWO configurable Analytics windows; so we can run them parallel for awhile?

You don't need two windows. You can paste the first code and then put the second code. If you want, you can insert a comment between them. google codes

A HTML comment is a Less Than, then an exclamation point, then two hyphens. To end the comment, two hyphens, then a Greater Than sign.

I wonder how much faster the Internet would be if 1) there were no 'comments' in code or 2) comments only need 1 hyphen before and after the comment or 3) comments were limited to 12 characters.

Is it appended to the top of the page or the bottom of the page?

You can do a VIEW SOURCE of your website and find out yourself, but I will tell you - it is the bottom of the page.
