Well, also according to google analytics, it looks like on average,
it takes people about 5-6 "visits" to gumstix.com before they buy.
So it could well be that traffic today leads to sales in a week or
so. We'll see.
By the way, I highly recommend this google analytics thing if
anyone's doing any e-commerce stuff, or trying to measure marketing
performance of a website. It generates some great info for you, with
a fairly straightforward integration.
The only 2 negatives are that they're not currently accepting new
signups, and that the updating of stats is currently running a bit
slowly (looks like only about 1 update per day), both of which I
think are the result of massive sign up rate since their launch.
