What is it?

The new version of Google Analytics is here and ready to go! Over the next few weeks we'll be saying goodbye to the old Analytics and hello to the new. Complete with a brand new, redesigned interface that makes it even easier to segment and explore your data, the new version also has powerful new features to help you quickly access insights to optimise advertising, site content and conversions.

Powerful, yet simple and faster than ever

The new version offers Real-Time Reporting which allows you to see what's happening on your site up to the second; Multi-Channel Funnels to enable you to see which channels customers interacted with during the 30 days prior to converting or purchasing, and Mobile Reporting to help you understand how mobile visitors are interacting with your site. This also includes Adwords reporting by device so you can see how tablets and mobile campaigns differ.
