    I noticed today looking at my site tracking script, that even though I have it to ignore my ip address, thus not logging my visits, I can still show hits/fake visits using the "web preview" feature on G's results. If you mouse over to the right of a result on G, it pops up with a preview of the site. Each preview will count as a hit to my site with a different IP address. It's showing the hits on MY tracking script, but so far it doesn't show in G's analytics. I'm sure this could somehow be used to inflate visits to a site you intend on selling, or some other means. I'm sure one of you guys could create an macro or something to do something with this.

    that's a cool observation. Maybe is useful, maybe not... because G tracking system is kinda a reference... and if the views don´t count for big G... they don´t count for selling, right? I don´t know... maybe im wrong. Im just a noob
