__utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmv, __utmz  (Google Analytics cookies)

(Definition taken from http://helpful.knobs-dials.com/index.php/Utma,_utmb,_utmz_cookies)

The cookies named __utma through __utmz come from websites that use Google Analytics, which primarily uses it to track visits.

__utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link)

__utma stores each user's amount of visits, and the time of the first visit, the previous visit, and the current visit (presumably partly for double checking of this information).

__utmb and __utmc are used to check approximately how long you stay on a site: when a visit starts, and approximately ends (c expires quickly).

__utmv is used for user-custom variables in Analytics

__utmk - digest hashes of utm values

__utmx is used by Website Optimizer, when it is being used
