  • I like the email report feature.
    Good for allowing your client to stay up to date without having to teach them how to use google analytics or having to give them the logins for it.

  • that is currently the only obstacle. If google could offer a service that distilled the reports into a written format thats worded in laymen’s terms then that would help to remove the obstacle.
    Further training videos like this one would also serve to educate those who don’t understand all the reports.

  • Analytics is a fine and dandy tool. I’ve been using it for many years. But the thing about it is that if you don’t have an intelligent person to analyze and implement the data, its pretty much a useless piece of software.

    An intelligent person is the key to getting the most out of analytics.

  • I love analytics and reccomend it to anyone who asks, not sure why some people still use awstats.

  • Helpful tutorial!
    You folks at Google never cease to amaze me at what the internet is capable of!

  • You can use Google Analytics to track any web page that you own, by adding a short script to your HTML code. You’ll get this code from your Analytics account, which btw, doesn’t cost anything.
