Click on it and you will see a world map with balloons showing where in the world your visitors are coming from within the past 24 hours, like this:
You and your site visitors can see roughly what locations throughout the world have been to your site. This isn’t exactly an analytics tool, but just a visual way to add a little interactive fun to your site. Too many widgets can slow down your site considerably, and that is definitely undesirable, but Geovisitors should not be a problem, especially for smaller sites.
