Google Analytics 2.0 changes everything, and according to the CEO of ThinkMetrics, the competition is dead. They just haven’t stopped moving yet.
Death by Google
Google has killed the web analytics software industry with the release of the new version of Google Analytics. The new version was released just under two months ago and is simply a quantum leap above any other analytics product on the planet.
In my opinion, Google Analytics does for the web metrics industry what the Google search engine did for online search: it kills everyone else off.
Google Analytics version 2 is not revolutionary. It does not extend web analytics software by providing new forms of analysis. Neither does it extend our understanding of websites by offering new approaches. What Google has done is simply take every feature in every product on the market and put them all into one system, and then make it available for free.
