    hi
    how do I uninstall google analytics in a search engine friendly way?
    Do I simply remove the code from every page?
    I am afraid if I do this, google will think my site is getting zero traffic and my drop me in rankings.

    should i expect my rankings to change as a result of uninstalling?

    What reason do you have to remove Analytics?

    I can't think of any reason you'd want to remove it unless you were transfering it to another account. Which in that case your just changing the tracking code.

    Plenty of reasons to get rid of it, GA does slow down load speeds, other tracking software is just as good

    You'll have to do alot more than just remove analytics to stop google spying on you :p

    When anyone searches or clicks anything at google, they track it.
    Analytics is a tool for YOU to get visibility into what google knows.
    Google can determine bounce, time on page, etc. w/o analytics.
