Google Analytics Gets a Rough Start
- Posted by Badi Jones on November 17th, 2005 - Comment on this Post »
Well, Google Analytics is finally working. Sort of… My account is only showing data for 1/2 of Monday, and 1/2 of Tuesday of this week. Im not sure what to think about that The letter from Google said:
Please note that this reporting delay is associated with unexpected demand for Google Analytics.
Under normal circumstances, the data in your reports will be at most six hours old.
From what I have seen so far though, the product is very impressive. It surpases any other free web analytics that I have tried so far.
NetTracker lite has more detail in some areas, but you are limited to only 1,000,000 hits at a time.
One thing that sets Google Analytics apart from many other programs is that it gives you a powerful array of tools for tracking an adwords campaign.
I know there are a lot of you out there who are very weary of anything free, especially somthing like this from Google, but I think the only thing they could really have done with Urchin was to give it away for free. After all, (almost) everything else Google has released is free, and they cant just start charging for stuff now.
