With all the Google watching and speculation that goes on, I’m surprised noone saw this coming. (Or if they did, I didn’t hear about it…)
Well Google have now released Google Analytics – a free website statistics tool that webmasters can install on their site to monitor and track visitors. This looks very cool but I’ve only just installed it on my site so I don’t have any data yet to look at. The reporst look quite good and utilise flash for some swish effects. There’s a definite focus on your Adsense earnings too, but you don’t need Adsense to run these on your site.
I’ll compare the findings to my existing tracking software provided by statcounter.com over the next couple of weeks. Shouldn’t be too long before Microsoft and Yahoo to follow suit… (yawn)?
