Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
On the one hand I kind of think 'how much is there to really talk about Google Analytics'? Then, on the other, I can probably think of a couple of questions off the top my head straight away.
Overall, there may well be more to talk about than the Adsense forum which generally seems to thrive quite well around three subjects endlessly looping. ;)
Perhaps this person can be persuaded to hang out here also. I don't know if a separate Google Analytics forum will result in less GA activity on the AdWords forum.
However, this is a good point I hadn't taken seriously. GA is, by design, a tight integration between "analytics" per se and Google advertising programs. Maybe it does need to be separate just because of that.
I had no idea this was the case or that there even was a GAnalyticsAdvisor. Nor would I ever have thought to look in the Adwords forum for info on Google Analytics. I definitely vote yes.
But that is a shame as GA is simply a tool. The real value comes from understanding the data and that skill requirement is pretty uniform across all web metric tools - so we can all learn from each other.
However, I vote yes in order not to dilute the non-GA questions (if its that bad)
