If you pay $200/mo for Urchin now, you may want to reconsider.

Putting out of business the sellers of web-marketing software that promotes shady black-hat techniques they don't like? ;-)
has anybody out there had their report data updated two or three days in a row yet? just wondering what the chances are that i might get to see today's data tomorrow.
Is there a consensus yet on what Google gets out of all this that adds to their already impressive profit-generating business?
I don't see them using this data on a large scale in the short term, but if Microsoft or Yahoo had done this first, they might have been able to use that vast database of web behaviour to leapfrog AdSense or even Google's search technology.
P.S. Using page/site popularity or browsing patterns to drive search results is a potentially earthshaking idea, if anyone can ever get it to work. I just hope Google don't screw up their CURRENT search algorithm, which is based on authority and relevance rather than which sites are the stickiest or the funnest.
I'll open up a $5 adwords account. My goal is to sell the $5,00000000 widget on my site when all other widgets are $5.
Now, I'm still getting traffic to my site, I'm making tons of money selling cheap widgets, but I never hit my goal of the big widget.
Not really fair to publishers or google for once.
I don't like them measuring conversion at all. It's not our fault an advertiser can't convert. If we are not cheating with clicks, than there's not much more I can do.
I try and provide the best information I can...
Google are in this terrible habit of doing things without informing their customers. My Urchin stats have been down for atleast 1 week...Maybe if they told people they were going to disrupt the service and make changes things might have gone alot smoother, could have been less of a frenzy, more organised and everybody would have been happy...
They gonna bite their own tale off one of these days and the funny thing thing is not even know about it...
Two days ago there are huge lag, now the data show on time. However, it's a pity, I can't add additional websites.
With a little bit of guile, it is possible to add more sites to your profile. Log into Analytics and the look at the URL. It will look like this:
Then, make note of the 5 digit number and type it into the relevant place in this URL:
Visit the URL with your account number in it and you will be able to add more sites.
Johann, you have to use a custom filter to do this. Read the help pages...
fanks but its not easy finding the info... I am still searching and only got as far as "Add new Filter for Profile"

Filter type: exlude all traffic from an IP address
IP address: 123\.123\.123\.[0-9]+$
(lets assume my ip address 123.123.123.*)
btw I also tried without "$" but with no success
Could you tell me why this filter doesnt apply correctly? I still see my visits on the stats..
And it seems goal tracking doesnt work too. I created several goals like:
After a week of tracking (or less) it didn't track any conversions.
