Yesterday I was prepped by the folks on Google for my post on Google Analytics Launches New Version With New UI & Features at Search Engine Land. What is new? In short, there is a new user interface, sleek new graphs and reports, and features such as email reports, customizable dashboards and easier to understand explanations of reports. The Google Blog and Google Analytics Blog both now have posts on this new release.
There are tons of screen captures floating around Flickr. Google sent me a few, but here is a screen capture of the dashboard.
For a smooth transition, here are a few helpful resources specific to the new version:
Both DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld have threads on the release. Here are some comments from those who were already upgraded, don't worry if you do not see the new analytics yet, you will within a few weeks.
Just logged in and have seen the new version. I like the AJAX elements, but like you, it will take time to adjust to it.
Definitley a much snazzier interface, I really like the new graphing options
The new site overlay feature is really sweet also. So is the Graphing comparisons month-to-month.
Again, if you do not see the new version - you will in the next several weeks. If you see the new version and want the old version, you will be able to access it for at least 30 days.
