Hi,
I'm using Google Analytics to monitor the use of our new website www.oakwellbrewery.co.uk. Oakwell is in Barnsley, UK, however when I am the only visitor and I'm in Barnsley then I am seen as someone in Derby. I actually live in Sheffield so when I am the only visitor in Sheffield then it shows up as Alfreton.
This would not normally annoy me but I do have a pub in Alfreton. Also the distance between Derby and Barnsley is a lot greater than the distance between Sheffield and Alfreton.
Just thought I should mention this as I hear that Google is going into the mapping game....................oh no that's Apple.....sorry.
