There are a few problems with analytics solutions as they stand today for newer Web professionals. Most don't really want to do a lot of investigation to see who has visited their site, but more importantly, most analytics packages don't give you an idea of how many users are on the site (or an individual page) at any given moment. That's why, when I see one, I like to share it with the wider Web community.
RadarURL.com offers gives an easy way to monitor online visitors. While traditional statistics/analytics packages provide loads of in-depth information, it's rarely in real-time - something which RadarURL does and does pretty well. Website owners place the RadarURL widget on their page, and an image is loaded every time someone visits the page where the code is located. This enables RadarURL to count and keep track of your page's visitors, provide statistics about which pages are being visited and where the users are coming from at any moment in time.
Information gathered from the widget (quantity, country of origin, page being visited) and more can be seen on the advanced statistics page that anyone can view by clicking the actual widget itself. While not the most robust analytics or statistics solution, it is pretty entertaining.
