My favourite Google Analytics feature is to rank keywords according to the number of pageviews the specific search led to (pages/visit).

I find this is the most accurate tool to find out what kind of information your visitors like best - and I just have to know where to extend the content in this area. It is often quite surprising, too.

So any features you like in particular?

The function you mention is very useful.

Lately I've been focusing on pages with higher bounce rates, especially on pages with high traffic. To me, it means I had an opportunity to make a sale, but my message or product didn't capture the visitor.

Thanks for the first tip, I may just use that.

My favourite Analytics feature is viewing all traffic sources, looking at the Goal Conversion percentages for the sources that bring in the most visits.

It allows me to see which of our high traffic referrers, actually convert visitors the most. Definitely useful knowledge if you're thinking of renewing your advertising on a particular website or not.

I have not been using Google Analytics for very long, but I guess my favorite feature would have to be the bounce rates...

I have to say though, I am disappointed in the fact that I cant get up to date stats when I want them.

I have to say that am more than happy with the way Google (as always) Analytics shows the data in a click of a button! Mind you .. its a HUGE data which we analyze through GA and its so fast to respond. I wonder how is this possible since its serving data to so many users at a time?

Also the interface looks pretty neat and clean to me. "$ Index" value of a page is something very useful.

I love that I can create my own "dashboard" to display instantly what's currently important to me.
