As of this morning, Google Analytics has been updated to provide FREE real time analytics. This is the biggest thing that has happened to Google Analytics since it was released.
To access the new feature, you must be using the “New Version”:
- Click “New Version” in the top right corner (if it says “Old Version” as a link, you are using the new version)
Then, once you log out, and log back in to the New Version:
- Access your profile
- Click on “Home” in the top nav
- Click “Real-Time (BETA)” in the top left nav
- Real time reporting!
The new view offers an Overview including Current Visitors (new vs returning), Pageviews per minute / per second, Top Referrals, Top Active Pages, Top Keywords, and Top locations. You also get a Locations page, traffic sources page, and content page.
It seems to report going back 30 minutes.
There are some interesting things you can track now with Real-Time reporting, and some segmentation / goals.
