I didn't want to read through all 13 pages worth of posts, so my apologies if this is already answered.
On a "Pay to View" site, my main concern is seeing which pages derive which % of traffic, because that's how the "profits" are divied up between content providers on the site.
IE: The pages contributor A made accounted for 15% of traffic, contributor B's pages account for 5%, etc. Therefore A gets 15% of the money set aside for profit share, B gets 5%, and so on.
Right now, I'm just using a PHP script to track the relevant pages. Would there be any advantage for me to switch over to Google Analytics?
Or is this problem too durn simple to even bother?
Has anyone who couldn't get Google to find the code on their site get anything different after some time?
Also where are the WW servers? The forum posts timestamps are 7 hours off my time. I am MST.
Also, I hope Google doesn't work the results into their search engine rankings. It would be horrible if G started sending me even less traffic because certain pages always get bounced off of, or something.
What will they do with all the data? What about sites who still get their PR by transmission, not because of their traffic or unique content?
Nice test, isn't it?
> PI's differ significantly from Adsense PIs.
A wild guess... Could the difference be the result of ad-blocking? And if it is, could this be a metric for "guesstimating" what percentage of visitors are blocking ads? (And for a company who makes 90%+ of their revenue through online advertising, you can be sure that they have a vested interest in what that percentage is.)

LOL! Thanks for the tagline!
This move by Google will have a big impact on any company supplying web analyzer software.
My first impression is that there is just so much information that they supply. How will I find time to go through it and make profitable use of it.
If they continue like this Google jokes are gonna be more popular than MS jokes.
Is it just me, or is the "unexpected surge" excuse becoming a common refrain with each new offering? I mean this isn't the first time users have swamped Google when trying out/downloading/utilising their latest product, and that just sours the user experience for all.
At times like these, I wonder if Google is somewhat masochistic - seems like they enjoy the occasional self-inflicted "poor man's" DDOS attack.
