We just turned the reports on for a number of you, and over the coming weeks, everyone will have access to Real-Time. If you can’t wait, sign up for early access here: [services.google.com...]

[analytics.blogspot.com...]

Sounds like they are releasing it just after hearing the news about Twitter Analytics.

There's no such thing as "free", but, Google will always have a "no fee to site owner" version of Analytics -- it gives them (very valuable) data they'd never see if all they had to rely on were searches originating from their site.

More then a year ago Phil Mui (the GA Product Manager) commented that:

About your question on why GA is “free”. Here is one way to look at it: the online marketing industry is still relatively young. To convince marketers to shift their offline to online spend, there need to be very good reasons. As an online advertising platform company, it is in Google’s interest to help convince marketers that online advertising can be very accountable. There are many marketers who cannot afford certain solutions in the marketplace. GA tries to satisfy the measurement & reporting needs of these marketers. It also turns out that GA has been designed very well (IMHO) — some enterprises also find GA more than meeting their measurement & reporting needs.


Take a listen the podcast: [beyondwebanalytics.com...] - they're talking about the Real Time capabilities (starts at 30:20).

*yawn*

More ways to make sure you keep eyes glued to their site, and expend cash, too...

Dang it, kiddies, biz is biz, not watching third party reports.

Weekly is okay (too frequent in my opinion) once a month makes perfect sense, but nothing moves or changes in less than Quarters so investing time in the other smaller time slices is a waste of time, and an absolute indication one has NOT accurately planned their biz campaigns.

Then again, some just can't wait to see that .0001+/- change every thirty minutes... :)

*double yawn*

With Google changing the rankings 2-3 times per day on average (according to them) there's not much use in seeing generic data even in real time. The data gathering Google does and the page speed decrease are NOT offset by this new "instant" feature, pass.

EXACTLY which keyword led to which page from which ranking position, now that's data Google's never going to show you or they would have long ago.

Guess I'll have to update ga.js again. Not a big shift in terms of bytes, thankfully.
