New Google Analytics Announced
Ian Lurie Oct 16 2007
Google has announced a new version of Google Analytics. They’ll be rolling out the new features over the next several weeks, and they sound great:
- Tracking for outgoing clicks without tagging. Until now, you’ve had to hand-tag links away from your site if you wanted to track clicks on those links. Not any more.
- Rich media and AJAX analytics. I’m not 100% sure how they’ll do this, so I’ll withhold judgment until I see it in action.
- Integrated site search tracking. Remember this long tutorial I did? You won’t need it any more. Sniff.
I’ll keep you posted, and of course post new tutorials as the new features roll out.
