Google Analytics Update

Google recently updated their Google Analytics product to a new beta version. They've slowly been releasing to individual accounts and I just got my invite today.

I must say I'm very impressed with the new version. It pulls up the information I'm really interested in (page views, visits, traffic sources, etc) into a nice dashboard view for the last 30 days by default. You can then easily drill down into each one.

You can also add new items to the dashboard for full reconfigurability, but so far I'm pretty happy with the defaults.

In the old version I had to dig through the left menu to find the specific reports I cared about, and it always took much longer than I wanted it to, and therefore I use it less.

The bad news is that this site doesn't appear to be building to MySpace levels, so I doubt I'll be getting a call from Rupert any time soon.

  1. Completely agree. Google Analytics, while through, was almost completely useless from the casual users POV.

    The new version has a much better dashboard, with the ability to drill down if you want.
