Question: Was that map you showed on the geotargeting page an actual tool that is available (where you can see the location of people who hit your page on a map) or was that just a demonstrative picture?
Answer: That map was just a picture. However, inside of Google Analytics, on the left hand side, click on demographics. Google Analytics has a wonderful and easy way to drill down to your inbound clicks based on geographies.
You can also set up an Advanced Segment and base it on region (state) or even city (for the USA), and again you will be able to see the geographic dispersion of how people are coming to your website.
