Google Analytics Swings at Measure Map Does ANYONE have Google Analytics working yet? Anyone?

    Define “working” and I’ll let you know. :)

    Like you, I have the code in place, but so far, no statistics being reported when I log in to Google. *shrug*

    Same here. Looking at the Google Analytics Support Forums, it looks like everyone (even existing paying Urchin customers) is in the same boat and Google has not yet made any comment. I’m willing to be patient. :-)

    Nope… still not going for me 36 hours later…

    ive got it working great. i just put the required code in appropriate spot in my header.php file (using wordpress 1.5.2). google analytics still says its ‘waiting for data’ but theres already a bunch of stats online. its great. ive got a days worth of stats and already its revealing stuff that is very helpful for targeting my audience.

    I have it working on my website and it’s amazing. You’ll never go back to a basic stats program again after using this. Has a Executive Overview, Conversion Summary, Marketing Summary and Content Summary sections and very, very detailed breakdowns below each along with well designed graphs.

    It’s well worth the wait for everything to show up.

    Statistics info appeared some hours ago. And the depth of the information is amazing.

  7. David Russell (32 comments.) says:

    Nope – it’s still failing to detect the header code. I have to say that it isn’t like Google to half-ass a product like this.

    It doesn’t work in Firefox 1.5b2. I had to switch over to IE to get the reports. Once you do that, it is pretty impressive.

    PdxFoodDude: I am using FF 1.5 RC2 works fine and it should be no reason not to work in b2 either. Disable your Greasemonkey scripts (those Google related at laest) and everything will work

    It eventually started working for me, but so far I’m not knocked out by it. Nice interface, but slow to load and a bit vague. Not one of Google’s better offerings!

    I have placed the code in 3 different sites of mine. After 4 days google is now producing reports on 1 of the sites, but still says waiting on data from the other 2 sites.

    I put the code on two sites Tuesday morning and they started working right about 48 hours later (or at least that is when I checked again).

  14. Meredith (24 comments.) says:

    I just added the code, and of course it won’t even validate. I can’t get Google to even acknowledge the Analytics code is on my site, much less start waiting for data. Has anybody else had that particular problem?

  15. Meredith (24 comments.) says:

    Ah, an answer from Google! When I inquired about the above issue, the response was:

    The “Check Status” feature is currently not accurate. If you added the code to your pages correctly, then we are collecting data. You can make sure by seeing if your site has set “_utm” cookies in your browser.

    If your reports aren’t currently populated, they will be as soon as the next processing run is complete. We process every 24 hours.

    You may see some reports within a profile before others. We’re populating reports like this to get you as much information as soon as we can. If you see this, rest assured that all applicable reports will show data soon.

    Once we catch up with the data for your account, you’ll see new reports every 24 hours.

    This is awesome. Another reason why I love Google.

    I installed it the day I heard about it (two days ago) and the next day I had the first 24-hour logs registered with Web Analytics. I did correspond with Google because the tool did not recognize that I had successfully installed the script on my homepage, but Google support assured me that this was a known bug and that my data would be aggregated anyhow.

    I really like the tool. It’s information overload for me, and probably for most non-professional bloggers without ad campaigns and promotions, but sweet, fishy, mother of Cod, there’s a lot of data there! I love the different ways of looking at the information, such as specific bounce rates for individual pages (Urchin’s unusual definition of “bounce” is an entrance page that is also the exit page).

    The very day I had 24 hours worth of data to show for my site, I immediately got on the horn to the Internet Operations department at my employer and walked him through the interface. I can guarantee you that this will be closely looked at by corporations and anybody running promotions and ad campaigns on their sites. The data is simply stunning.

    Yes, there’s a lot you get here that’s more easily available elsewhere, and in a more useful format. I will still use BAStats for a quick and accurate overview of the last 24 hours’ traffic and referrer logs. But I’ll also use GWA to see which of my posts are the stickiest (generate deeper page views) even though they may not be showing up high in my traffic logs.

    Mine works – sort of. I got a day’s worth of stats, then a day of nothing, then a day of stats. Unless my Apache webserver has become sentient and fills up my logfiles with garbage, or everybody has Google blacklisted, then Google Analytics is not reliable or accurate in any way. You guys should take the results with a huge grain of salt until Google sorts the situation out.

    Mine working great, on 6 sites. But I read somewhere that google hold new site submition because servers load.

    I read it on polish forum:

    We have just installed google analytics on our website. The classic that is the old format is much easier for us as we are new to it. However the new one is a bit complex

    How not to launch a web 2.0 product, or, scalability in the modern internet

    With the failed launch of Google Analytics and its inability to deliver immediate statistics and tracking uniformly across the blogosphere, I thought I’d bring out a few big no-nos we can all learn from.

    Data Aggregation of Measure Map While Google Analytics Waits

    So it has been only 3-4 days since I’ve installed gAnalystics and Measure Map to gather information on this site’s traffic. The biggest con with gAnalytics would probably be it’s time-period to gather the latest information from your site(s). It…
