At the most basic minimum manage your cookies. Just a quick search (not with google) gives:
google.com/support/urchin45/bin/answer.py?answer=28710  (you'll see a LOT of _utm<x> type cookies as soon as you start watching them)

There are many other companies out there that know more about you than you think possible.  Small example: Do you allow third party cookies unfettered access to what you do?
