New-look Google Analytics

Looks like Google are having a play with the layout of Google Analytics.

First thoughts - it looks cool. Certainly seems to be faster, and it looks more simplified (not always a good thing).

I'm yet to really drill into it, but some of the changes are...
  • Wider "visits" graph, which by default spans a month instead of a week.
  • A nice "timeline" feature which makes selecting a daterange a breeze.
  • Default traffic sources pie chart shows traffic as "search engines", "direct" and "referral". Previously this showed specific search engines, which I thought was more useful. Good to see the "other" category gone though, which typically accounted for a lot of traffic for me.
  • Lots of other changes

Overall, I'm looking forward to checking this out more. Nice one Google.
