Google Analytics–More new features

More Google Analytics updates/improvements

Google continues to try and improve and make more relevant all its offerings whether that is search based or in this case relating to its free Google Analytics.

With all the Panda updates that have gone on this year alone it is sometimes difficult for many site owners to understand the real impact these may have had unless careful and detailed analysis is taken to understand their visitor behaviour. Google Analytics helps you do just that.

The 3 listed below have been introduced this month in December. The first two are probably of more use with the third showing Google’s Analytics growing use throughout the world.
