    Anyone noticed that Google Analytics has a new look as of today? Just found out and trying to figure out whether I like this one better than the old one.

    I LOVE the new one!

    It's been in Beta for a while so i've used it for a long time. Of course everyone doesn't like getting used to change when it comes, when I first used it I remember always remember clicking return to old version, but now I love it!

    Especially love the live statistics reporting :).

    It was already available in beta test since about 1 month or so.
    I like the feature statistics in real time!

    I don't really care about the look of it, but I'm about all set with the (not provided) in the keyword sources.
    I guess it happens when a user is logged in to Google when searching, which is a large percentage of internet users.

    What the fuck am I using an analytics for if I can't see what the users are searching for?

    Its been out for a while, I use it for about 30 clients and it runs like a dead horse!

    I like the segments and better dashboards though but damn its slow

    Yea, the "not provided" is driving me nuts as well.

    "As search becomes an increasingly customized experience, we recognize the growing importance of protecting the personalized search results we deliver." - In my opinion, a stupid reason to have it like that.

    On the other hand, "In Google Webmaster Tools you can find the top 1,000 search queries that have delivered traffic to your website in the last 30 days."

    Yeah it's really annoying! But to correct, it happens when someone search in google with SSL, I mean when someone use https://www.google.com instead of http://www.google.com

    ive had this new version for a couple of weeks. and since they've implemented it I've stopped using google analytics simply because its not as easy to find everything that I used to find easily.. it will take some getting used to for me
