Google Analytics

Google has just released a web traffic analysis service called Google Analytics based on the well regarded Urchin service they acquired ~ 6 months back.

It’s free to anyone with an active AdWords account and integrates AdWords stats with the web analytics. It’s also free for up to 5M page views a month to any publisher. I’ve installed it on Geekfun to check it out.

I suspect that it offers much more power than I’m going to use on Geekfun, but it would be interesting to see how this improves on the Statcounter stats currently on the “Harvey Danger”:http://harveydanger.com site. Also, I think the webhost we are using at work bundles an Urchin license, which I’ll probably use on a web app we’ll be releasing soon.
