What's your favorite Google Analytics GRIPE?

Mine today is this:

Why doesn't the back-key restore where you were?

That's a good one.

I've always had difficulty with the "Referrer Conversion" language. When I just want to know all the referrers it always throws me off that it talks about conversions. I think it's a good idea to keep people thinking to the conversion level. But sometimes that "conversion" obsession is confusing when you aren't looking for conversions at that point in time.

However, I will say that all analytics programs seem to be really into having their own twist on specific language. It all seems to make things a little more difficult than necessary.

why can't I just bookmark a specific report so I can just go back to it or forward that "page" to someone?

Hey Olney... GA actually does. When you're looking at the Referring Source, click on the pink circle, and choose Content from the Cross Segment Performance menu. It'll show you the rest of the URL after the domain.

Why doesn't the back-key restore where you were?

just in case you havnt noticed, there is a breadcrumb link on top of the graphs. It just doesnt look lke a link, but acts the same as the back button
