      that most search engine spiders do not process javascript?

      Hi Martin. Google Analytics uses a javascript-generated tracking
      cookie, similar to HBX/CoreMetrics/Omniture/etc. Only spiders that
      process javascript will be tracked. That being said, most search engine
      spiders do not process javascript.
