Welcome to the forums, globglob77
You know, even in recent days, Matt Cutts has flat out denied that kind of connection - even saying that he recently double checked just to be 100% certain. See this video [youtube.com]. Now I've known him to use some cagey wording at times, and we could say misdirect our attention, but I've never known him to flat-out lie.
I also don't think it would make any sense to have a ranking factor that was only available for some of the index. So I definitely don't by the idea that Google Analytics data is part of the organic ranking algorithm.
