Google Analytics Releases New Version With Sleek New User Interface

 

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.

New Google Analytics Time on Site

For a smooth transition, here are a few helpful resources specific to the new version:
  • Take a tour of the new version
  • Report Finder Tool: will help you see where data from the previous interface is located within the new version (it is also linked to from within your reports on the left navigation menu)
  • FAQs for more details about the new version
  • New version features page

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.

Forum discussion at DigitalPoint Forums and WebmasterWorld.
