Google Inc. has bought Measure Map, an online analytics tool for blogs.

The product was bought from San Francisco consulting firm Adaptive Path for an undisclosed sum. Jeff Veen, an Adaptive Path founder and product director for Measure Map, was hired by the Mountain View, Calif., search engine.

Measure Map is meant to help bloggers understand how their sites are used. The tool's capabilities include tracking visitors and their activities, as well as tracing the origin of links to blogs from other sites.

>>>devalue

Doubt it. I think this will give them a lot of data to work with though. As a blogger, I think it's cool.

More data for Google to aquire.

And we used to worry about the goverment knowing everything about everyone.

The goverment is somewhat hindered in doing this because of politics.

Big Daddy/Big Brother hmmmm . . .
