I'm already signed in my Gmail account and saved my password. To view my mailbox the only thing I have to do is to visit Gmail.com.

But the problem is with visiting analytics.google.com. Each time after visiting the URL I have to click on "Sign In" and the funny thing is that I don't have to enter my credentials and I'm quickly redirected to analytics control panel. So it sounds like a time-wasting job to click on sign in each time I visit there.

Today I found that by visiting analytics.google.com/web I don't have to click on sign in anymore. But isn't there any way for not clicking sign in when you visit analytics.google.com or googleanalytics.com or google.com/analytics?

It's their splash screen, and annoyingly it has always been like that. Unfortunately there is no way to skip it without going directly to the /web.

I'd suggest just bookmarking the link to http://www.google.com/analytics/web/, or if you use Chrome, type in the full URL (same as above) and eventually it'll learn to autocomplete to that instead of the splash screen.

As there's no answer to my question, I have to accept your answer as accepted answer though this is not solving my problem. Thanks MisterPhilip. – Manoochehr Jan 9 '13 at 6:27
I wish I had a better answer for you too. I am annoyed they do that :( – MisterPhilip Jan 9 '13 at 20:20

If you're a Chrome user, there's an extension that automatically bypasses the splash called Straight to Google Analytics. It takes a second or so to redirect, but much better than clicking that Sign On link every time.
