I haven't taken analytics off yet, but I'm thinking about it. It's screwing up my stats, and my analytics are what I need to sell direct advertising. Not to mention measure performance from one year to the next.
(I couldn't make that link to the google group work; it just takes me to whole google group overview)
In my case, it's hitting the home page, which is the top earning page. So it's a big deal. And there doesn't seem to be a way to block it without blocking direct users or search engine bots. At least, no way that wouldn't get me booted out of Google for cloaking.
