Full, closed circle. The screaming of the feedback will be heard globalwide... ;-)

Philipp,

From your first screenshot, it seems you still haven't clicked the "Check now" button on the top.

Your tracking won't start until your click the "Check now" button on the Google Analytics page.

I've been playing with this a little. Google won't be putting anyone out of business with this – it runs like treacle!

Matthew, as always I think it's safe to say that Google have underestimated the interest this launch would generate. Either that, or they've not properly stress tested their application... ;-)

At the moment, I'm just seeing a page saying:

Currently Undergoing Maintenance

Google Analytics reporting is currently undergoing maintenance and will be available shortly. Your site traffic is being logged and you will be able to see the data after system maintenance has concluded.

google.com/analytics/maintenan ...

I'm sure they'll sort out the speed very soon, even if that means limiting new sign-ups.

i think at the moment it's just suffering from the slashdot effect. it'll be fine by tomorrow or in a couple of days. i think it's brilliant that they have done this.

The whole thing looks nice to me, too. I wonder how certain other provider of web stats respond to the launch..

Nice to see google using the domain google-analytics.com instead of analytics.google.com so they don't get the cookie of everyone who accesses a site set up like this.

I thought Urchin was well worth the price at $199 a month. Now that it's free, I think a lot of stats providers are totally doomed.

In the google Aanalytics page says that the script should be included before the </head>. What happens if google-analytics.com/urchin.js is down or slow? your whole page will be with errors or slow. Can that script be included somewhere else?

This just in – the official press release:
google.com/press/pressrel/anal ...

Hmm, script must be included before the </head>? I better check, 'cause I placed it on the bottom of the page...

There’s no doubt in my mind that if I were Web Trends, or any other web stats company that charges money for their service, I would have officially crapped my pants, and would be looking for a new job."

based on your screenshot and description, this looks alot like a service provided by BlogFlux:

" mapstats.blogflux.com/\"

The UI on this page is different from anything we've seen so far. heh, nothing seems to be consistent. its very pretty and uses very few images, but its still odd that thier design isnt consistent. the closest thing i've seen to this is the college life page:
services.google.com/university ...
It looks like google UI comes in three flavors:
-->the main one on search and groups and local and froogle, etc
-->the gmail one on gmail and reader
-->and this one on college life and analytics.

I agree with Jason. The $199 price was OK and it gave you 50 profiles. I was sharing it with other people and it was nice. One of those people was Jon and I think his comment it on target. I bet the stats companies are pretty perplexed. So is Google making it impossible to compete in the paid webstats realm? Is this a good thing? Are they destroying competition with Free Stuff? Microsoft would be so proud!!!

So what do you expect them to do? "oh we have all these wonderful resources and can do webmasters a great service and get more AdSense up at the same time" "oh no i think a few companies down the street beat us to it, better not give them any competition, we'll just continue to let people pay hundreds of dollars for the service." That's not the motive force behind capitalism, its the motive force behind communism.
