    At least regarding clone, you now (August, 12th 2014) have a dedicated graph.

    See “Clone Graphs”

    Our traffic graphs tab shows you a lot of information about who’s visiting your repository on the web.
    We’ve added a new graph to this tab, showing git clone activity. clones traffic graph

    • how many times your repository’s source code is actually cloned in a given day, as well as
    • how many unique GitHub users (or anonymous IP addresses) did the cloning.

    For more information on traffic graphs, check out the documentation.

    Quick update on this:
    Google now offers a direct API call which can be used inside the README file on github to gather statistics directly to Google analytics.

    At the moment (oct 2012) the answer is, No it’s not possible.

    Its super easy now!
