Google Analytics and Privacy 2[edit]

(First off: I don't know how to append this to the other comment to the privacy, but someone should do it...)

This article definetly needs the "This article is written like an advertisment"-tag, since it simply IS an advertsiment, without any criticism whatsover. But, Google-Analytics is a highly dubious feature, which is implemented on many blog websites without consent of the blogger and without any benefit for the blogger. Furthermore, it is an absolute privacy nightmare, because a lot of personal information is collected (Just do a google search for "google analytics privacy" - starting at about search result 15, you will find negative reviews exclusively) I think this needs to be included in the article somehow... if noone is going to do that, I will, but I would prefer someone else to do that since my English is not the best (although probably sufficient for a small section), and I don't know how to add the advertisement-tag either. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.84.29.56 (talk) 15:36, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

I have no knowledge of Blog websites that add Google Analytics without Blogger consent. But I think this should be a criticism to the Blog website not Google Analytics. They could be adding another Analytics plataform.
Sending personal information strictly prohibited per Google Terms of Service. But again this is a criticism for someone that is doing that. Eduardocereto (talk) 17:04, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Recent news[edit]

Hi, it seems that Google Analytics now don't receive information about which keywords were used by clients who visited their websites through Google Search (source). Can you add the information? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.134.94.96 (talk) 18:54, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

Unclear introduction[edit]

The language in the introduction is complicated. It does not answer "what is google analytics?". Yes, it states it is a "web analytics service", which does not make anyone unfamiliar with G A the wiser.

Could it be reformulated in more laymans terms? Also the history of google analytics (who purchased which company and when) could be made a separate section. Let the intro just be an intro. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.75.190.57 (talk) 04:56, 15 December 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Google Analytics. Please take a moment to review my edit. You may add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it, if I keep adding bad data, but formatting bugs should be reported instead. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether, but should be used as a last resort. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

You may set the |checked=, on this template, to true or failed to let other editors know you reviewed the change. If you find any errors, please use the tools below to fix them or call an editor by setting |needhelp= to your help request.

  • If you have discovered URLs which were erroneously considered dead by the bot, you can report them with this tool.
  • If you found an error with any archives or the URLs themselves, you can fix them with this tool.

If you are unable to use these tools, you may set |needhelp=<your help request> on this template to request help from an experienced user. Please include details about your problem, to help other editors.
