Google spamalytics

So much for Google Analytics. Turns out it’s a bit resource intensive to offer free web stats for anyone who asks. Who woulda thunk it?

I installed it here on lotusmedia.org and on OrangePolitics.org, but it only shows me stats for 1 of the 4 says it has been in operation. This is their excuse:

The demand for Google Analytics surpassed even our highest expectations and as a result some customers may temporarily experience report-update delays. All data continues to be collected and no data has been lost. We are currently adding resources to ensure high-quality service. We apologize for any inconvenience.

So now they’re collecting my data, and may be using it for all I know, but I can’t use it. Nice.

  1. An update on this… the analytics tools ARE working for me now. They are slow, but it works. BUT, I got the folllowing announcement by gmail:

    Hello Google Analytics User,

    This is a quick update to address some issues you may be seeing in your Google Analytics account and what we’re doing to respond.

    First, due to extremely high demand, we’ve temporarily limited the number of new signups as we increase capacity. This allows us to focus on our primary objective–to provide a great user experience for our existing users.

    Next, here is current information on the most common questions we’re receiving:

    1. The ‘Check Status’ button is being reworked to check for properly installed tracking code. This should be fixed by the end of November.

    2. The ‘+Add Profile’ link has been temporarily removed until we increase capacity. We’ll alert all current users when the feature is restored.

    3. While we increase capacity, you may see longer than normal delays in data showing up in your reports. All data continues to be collected and no data has been lost.

    For additional help with your Google Analytics account, we encourage you to browse or search our online Help Center at http://www.google.com/support/analytics?hl=en.

    Thanks for your patience as we improve Google Analytics and add resources to ensure a high-quality service.

    Sincerely,

    The Google Analytics Team
