Google Analytics Retires Old Version [analytics.blogspot.co.uk]
After a year of supporting both the old and new versions of Analytics, we are now fully transitioning and leaving the old version behind. This means that as of tomorrow we’ll be removing the link to the previous version which sits at the bottom of Google Analytics pages and all your analysis will take place in the new version.

I hate change, and Google embraces it!

Just have to adapt to the new version, its not like they haven't been harassing me to get with the program.

Ya boo rubbish! It might be new, but it's not 'improved'.

Although it's been inevitable and I've been preparing for this day, this is by far the worst "improved" UI upgrade I've seen.

Completely and unnecessarily convoluted to operate, bloated in presentation, clunky over-the-top organisation, requires more time fiddling with bells and whistles than accomplishing anything in an "improved" fashion.

Very, very bad, Google Analytics! Please stop improving for the sake of it!

Uhm... I missed the part I really need* to know. Do you have to do anything to your existing tracking code or do all necessary changes happen at g's end?


* Yes, OK, for a given definition of "need".

They have your data now. Why would you need to have easy access to it? Acquire from you, obfuscate for you, analyze without you. They'll wear you down and you'll still be giving them your data thinking you're getting something out of it.

I have to agree with everyone. I liked the old version better. Much easier to get to the information that I needed. I will say, what do you expect for free though. Can't really complain much.

So now they only provide WMT keyword referral data.

Which is about as useful as NOT PROVIDED on the old version.

Anyone know how to access old (historical) reports/data on the new version? Looks like everything's been deleted, but surely not?
And should you remove the old code before placing the new code (as Google suggests). Won't that remove all access to historical data?
