How can Google afford to give away a tool previously worth heaps to buy? Because they are worth Billions and this is a great way to get inside the sites they have been indexing.
I am lucky enough to have signed up before it all fell over and they stopped new signups. Yay!
And after a few hiccups, things are now working on the profiles I had set up and it looks GREAT. Previously I had used the free version of Hitbox until they started charging $50 USD per month to use it. It was great because it would give information that was useful in uncovering your visitors behaviours.
Well Google Analytics has superceded what I had with Hitbox, and it looks like it will be a staple utility to add to all of my customer sites.
Well done Google for providing another service that actually improves my life as a webmaster.
Till next time
