Well something weird happened to me. I created a non-admin user on my analytics account which was linked with adwords and my whole adwords account shifted to that login. I have stopped using analytics as I haven't received any reply to my request to re-associate the login. I guess they are working on the software - so I'll wait till they are back up.
Google analytics is very frustrating. I was happy paying my $169 per month in order to get reliable web stats. It was worth it and anyone in this forum realizes the value of analytics.
I am also frustrated with the lack of control of the reports (why can't they have memorized reports or other features to make it easier to compare data?) I would be happy to pay more money for greater functionality as well as real-time data. I am sick of the lag time issues.
I agree. It is not worth $169/month for me unfortunately (someday I hope!). But I would consider paying $19.99/month for no lag time and reliable service. It is unnerving to see my site stats at zero even if I know people are using the site as normal.
