Google Analytics version 5 recently launched and includes a completely reworked user interface and many, many infrastructure improvements. Navigation has been simplified to let you jump to the areas that are most important to you, including a new Dashboard section and My Site for Reports.
The new Dashboard tool has more data visualizations options, including:
• Absolute metrics
• Data over time graphs containing multiple metrics
• Pie charts
• Tabular data
You can also apply filters to each widget on the dashboard to further customize the data in the widget. These changes will make it much easier to create reports and visualize important data about your site traffic.
