Hey, anyone else using Google Analytics? It's FINALLY begun processing some stats, even though its still giving that 12 hour notice.

For those who've gotten it to work, any tips for meaningful filters or goals?

I was going to try this out after everyone has been complaining about it, but unfortunately it doesn't like my blogs URLs Crying or Very sad

stupid google!

BTW, there's already a WP plugin for it so you don't have to insert the code yourself.

Ok I signed up for "Google analytics" awhile ago, but I haven't had the time to install it (if you ever met me, you would know why..lol). Yea instead of copy and pasting the coding I just decided to dl the plugin instead. However I just did it recently, so does anyone know if it works? Haha I couldn't figure out where to paste the coding because when it comes to all this tech stuff, I have A LOT of difficulties. So if the wordpress plugin doesn't work, can anyone tell me where to paste the coding? Do I paste it in the header template? Arigatou Very Happy

If it doesn't work, paste it into header.php just under the meta tags but before the end of the head tags.

I'm not convinced Google Analytics is ready for prime time yet, even on our main site (which consists of the main page, affilliate links page and icons page) it doesn't show me any info on individual URLs, apparently it doesn't like them.

It also shows the forum as having 100% new visitors every day, something I know is wrong, even AwStats manages to report this better!

Haha no wonder I couldn't understand, mine says header template. I managed to get it to work, but I don't know if its because of the plugin or the coding I pasted in the template. Hmm..

Oh yea! The google statistic thingy is kinda confusing, but stat programs are always fun to look at. I have like three now, and I am thinking about testing out some more when I have free time. Yea and a lot of people seem to have troubles with GA, but it is new. Maybe they will improve it later on, because there is a high demand for it too.

Oh I'm sure they'll improve it, I'm just really surprised they didn't launch it as a Beta like they do most stuff and improve it gradually. They launched it as a full version, got overwhelmed with the response and it's buggy, completely un-Google-like! Gmail was more stable than GA when it first launched! I just wonder what in the world made them do it differently this time.

Figured that it doesn't work in the Opera browser at all. The stats won't show up. Kinda a hassle to still need to load up IE for this.

AwStats looks very comprehensive, thanks Maestro for adding that.

I'm sure they'll make it work with other browsers eventually, Gmail was the same way. Smile

No problem, I still need to finish up the process of making it create daily stats pages and prior month pages. That's not horribly complicated, just a lot of work to do and the scripting for it will take me quite a while. Sad
