To put it simply, an account contains a collection of profiles. Note, if you have a simple website, you can probably get by without creating profiles. Profiles exist to let you do two important things. Separate out information about specific web properties, like your blog... Apply different rules and criteria for advanced analysis... ...

I also couldn't find how to use OR. I can offer you a workaround however. Use the powerful Matching RegExp filter instead of Containing.

There is no easy way to do it. Since the "flash" charts are not available to embed on to your website. The only way you could do it is through the Google Analytics API, See, http://code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/ But this still won't give you charts. If you wanted charts you could use the Google Charts API in conjunction with the Google Analytics ...

I actually ran into this same problem myself. I ended up just building my own solution and publishing it for use. OOCharts uses just one script. On top of that, you can present the charts to the public or clients. It uses Google Charts to create the charts. I also included some prebuilt solutions for anyone who doesn't want to touch the javascript objects. ...

As this Google Analytics Google Groups states "IP Addresses are not tracked by Google Analytics" at all for some reasons mentioned in the post, like "it's not reliable", "it's not scalable" and "it's Evil".

Click on Admin (top right), then on the account you would like to transfer. Click on the Users tab, then New User button. Enter an email address, select Administrator option, and click Add User. Now the user that was just added can remove you from the account, effectively transferring everything. There are old posts floating around that make it seem ...

Google Analytics, among some other Google products, does not currently support account switching.

Yes, they are. In the left-side menu, go to Content → Site Content → Pages. Then, click on the Secondary dimension button below the graph and choose Visitors → Country/Territory. You will be presented with the pageviews per page per country. Note: this method applies to the new version of Analytics.

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1006253?hl=en explains how they compute the average visit duration: in short the formula is (The time of the first hit on the last page - the first hit on the first page) / (number of visited pages).

Ultimately, there is no way to hide it. Worst case, the competitor can just look at the address of the analytics image loaded on the page. But what's stopping them from creating a separate email address, registering a separate google analytics account and then just adding their original email as full-access co-administrator?

Why? The .NET version users have on their machines makes is immaterial. In fact whether they have .NET on their machine or not is immaterial. Any .NET code in your site is run server side not client side.

I think I've found the answer: http://www.google.com/support/analytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=72273 You cheat by adding another user (the one at @my-own-domain.com) to Google Analytics, giving him administrative rights and then revoking those rights from another user (the one at @gmail.com). Or maybe there is another way? Here's also a similar ...

Please note that when you view In-Page Analytics, it displays the current URL at the top left: Google Analytics allows you to override that URL with a custom one when a user views your website. For the specifics, you can check out the question How can I set a Page Title with Google Analytics? You can simply check if this is the case, by looking at any ...

I'm not 100% positive (Since I use 2 Google Accounts) but I believe you can give access to your Google Analytics site to me@gmail.com even though it was created by me@mycompany.com. I have two Google Accounts, account1@gmail.com and account2@gmail.com. I setup GA for account1 and then later gave access to account2 to view the stats. Heres a Help Post from ...

I would have to say false. I have a site with tens of thousands of pages, all of which have Google Analytics on them, but only a relatively small portion of them are indexed.

As far as I know, Google Analytics doesn't allow this. That's why many people who need public display of statistics (such as for advertisers) use Quantcast - it's very similar to Google Analytics but completely public.

Google has sample code for this: Visualizing Google Analytics Data with Google Chart Tools Quote: This article shows you how to take data from the Google Analytics Data Export API and visualize it with a variety of different graph types using the Google Charts API. This particular article is going to focus on doing it in Javascript

It's probably best to keep them under one profile to enable you to track bounce rates and internal traffic between the sub domains easier. Take a look at Advanced Segments and filters for separating your data. There is also some more useful info here and here. Hope this helps.

Once you delete it, it's gone.

Short answer: yes. Long answer: it depends on which version of the tracking code you are using. Meaning that if you are using an older version (urchin.js), you need to copy/paste a different tracking code into your secure pages. (Here is the man page: http://www.google.com/support/analytics/bin/answer.py?answer=55483)

This being a QR code doesn't make it any different to any other URL you might want to track. Create a page on your own website that does a redirect to the other site, and and make a QR code to the URL on your website. So people click the QR, go to your site, and end up at the target site. Then you can measure the hits to the URL. Use a meta-refresh ...

Actually, Google considers profiles as subsets of data of a particular site (source), so ideally you should have the entire set of data for that site at the web property level, thus being able to delete different profiles for a particular site without losing the original data. Now (and this is pure speculation), I think this is the reason they don’t offer ...

You can create a custom Report with the "Hour" dimension. It will aggregate by the hour. eg: https://www.google.com/analytics/web/permalink?uid=mz-C21ZJTaqOh-MxmaMhUw

You should change at both places. The property rules over all your profiles, but you will need to make sure the profiles match too. The harvested data will not change.

Google Analytics wants you to insert a piece of tracking code to your common header/each of your pages. But then Wordpress-free doesn't let you edit the HTML. So your best bet is WordPress statistics or maybe shift to a free Posterous account or a WordPress hosted account.
