Today Google announced that it will be rolling out a new version of its analytics package to all current analytics accounts over the next couple weeks. I couldn’t be more excited. Google Analytics is an awesome (free) package that allows you to easily gather serious data about your website traffic. If you haven’t tried it – you should – and what do you have to lose? It’s free.
Two new features have been included that I have been wanting since I started using Google analytics.
1) Email and export reports: Schedule or send ad-hoc personalized report emails and export reports in PDF format. Exporting data from Google Analytics in a presentable format has always been an issue. Being able to schedule emails of PDF format reports? Now that is extra exciting.
2) Custom Dashboard: No more digging through reports. Put all the information you need on a custom dashboard that you can email to others. Finally. Now you can tailor the report view to the items that you, your company, or you clients need the most. Awesome.
Thank you Google. Can I have my upgrade tomorrow?
