And for those still seeking a university degree..
Actually if you are paying for Urchin you got an email saying we won't charge you anymore, check out Google Analytics.
Pretty neat to get an email from a company saying that we'll now give away what you were paying $2500 a year for.
Lucky I decided against going into the "Free Web Counter!" game.
Not looking good.
Interesting, but I am not sure that I would like Google to be responsible for my website analytics as well.
Wow.. I don't normally wear a tin foil hat, but I'm suddenly feeling the urge to get one.
Giving google access to that much information sure strikes me as odd. Hmm...it is free.
Yes, its a scary thought, Google having a copy of your site's logdata.
However, they already have a lot of toolbar data and they can buy any Hitwise type of surf habit info they want.
Also, if you already do Adsense and Adwords, will it really make that much of a difference?
Aside from some, er, big-brother concerns, would there be any advantage
for non-commercial sites (no adsense etc.)? -Larry
I cannot see the option into my Adwords Control Panel :(
The account is not working for the moment (no working campaign in this momment).
Do you see this option into Adwords account?
WOW, seems we could be saving $200 + a month now on analytics.. Seems a bit strange that it would be totally free, gonna kill the whole web analytics market....
I mightbe going to give it a test drive.
Well... I'm already giving google access to information about my site through AdSense ;-)
Can someone more awake than I please explain this to me? In the Term of Service, I see this:
Personal Use Only
The Google Services are made available for your personal, non-commercial use only. You may not use the Google Services to sell a product or service, or to increase traffic to your Web site for commercial reasons, such as advertising sales. You may not take the results from a Google search and reformat and display them, or mirror the Google home page or results pages on your Web site. You may not "meta-search" Google. If you want to make commercial use of the Google Services, you must enter into an agreement with Google to do so in advance.
My website sells a product that I develop. I'd be using the Analytics to better track my viewers. This counts as commercial use, right? So I and anyone else in similar circumstances can't use this service.
I hope I'm missing something here, but that's what the TOS seems to say.
Almost everyone with AW is selling something.
I'm sure this is not what they mean.
What's next? freehosting.google.com?
RonPk: Thats called Google Base, check it out.
I was paying Urchin for monthly and now they say it is free. That is awesome. They definitely need to make some improvements in how the reporting is done. It is tedious to go in and check the same reports over and over. It should be much easier to have "memorized" reports that will display in a control panel. But overall, I like Urchin and it looks like they are making some improvements.
One complaint I have is that I have logged in to Google Analytics this morning and am not able to pull up any reports (it does not have any dates for me to select). It is also taking an extremely long time to pull up any pages. I assume this is a temporary problem; they must have been in a rush to roll it out before PubCon.
Can't log in with my account :\ maintenance mode
|Google Analytics reporting is currently undergoing maintenance and will be available shortly. Your site traffic is being logged and you will be able to see the data after system maintenance has concluded. |
Got my code and inserted it :\ .. maintenance again but seems to be failsafe luckily :)
Waiting for Data
Analytics has been successfully installed and data is being gathered now. Your first reports will be ready within twelve hours.
I wonder if you can check someone elses data :\ I have a friend that does not know much about computer stuff and I used to do his sitemap generations etc.
Anyone know if I can login from elsewhere. He is in Germany and I am in the UK. It used to work w/o problems but the last time I got a picture login screen.
There must be surely ways for you and your customers to use the same account.
You can add more logins. It's _clearly_ visible on the report page.
I wonder if you have even logged in once...
Anyody else getting "Currently Undergoing Maintenance" page anytime you try to access their stats?
yeah i get the same message
Google's Xmas present to the webmaster community?
Thank you, Google! :)
So where does one log onto this, anyone have clear instructions, I think many would like to know?
it seems to be a bit overloaded btw :)
I assume as long as there is no minimum monthly charge for an Adwords account this free tracking is great. Must assume, however, that down the road there will be a minium charge associated with this type of service. Even so, if minimum spending is $50 or less a month for Adwords this would still be a great addition.
has anyone thought that they could start Ranking websites based on the amount of visitors you get?
