Google Analytics 2.0
Ian Lurie May 8 2007
Google is rolling out a new version of Google Analytics. If you have an Analytics account, you should be upgraded in the next couple of weeks.
But the coolest changes, in my opinion, are:
- Customizable dashboards.
- Automatically e-mailed reports.
- Easier date range selection.
Google is billing this as an easier-to-use toolset. But I have to say that features 1 and 2 make this a better toolset for the geeks, too: Now I can have reports e-mailed to my office and automatically imported into our analytics tools.
