10 very good UI improvements to Google Analytics today
(If you found something else, please add to the comments)
Today I woke up to a re-designed UI on Google Analytics. Very interesting changes that add up to a more intuitive interface. Here are a few of them that I specially liked:
great thumbnails (although the $ sign should be in the Goals tab, not in the Advertising).
they look better, nicer to the eye, the points got smaller and more linked to the lines. And they are not Flash anymore, i.e. it works on iPads/iPhones.
3. Above graphs:
you now get to choose the data grouping without a drop down (Hourly, Day, Week...).
4. Above graphs:
increased visibility of "compare to metrics" option (thanks +Jim Gianoglio
5. Inside tables:
you now get the strip with the totals below the graph.
6. Inside tables:
you now see much clearer the goals tab, which is a much used part.
7. Above tables:
the types of data visualization are much easier to use outside a drop down.
8. In-Page Analytics:
I must confess I don't use this report very often, but it looks gorgeous (especially in full screen version)!
ability to share advanced segments and dashboards (thanks +Jim Gianoglio
data points from time series also download to excel (thanks +Adrian Palacios
