Google Analytics Upgrade:

AdSense Reporting, Visualization Tools,.....More

Google Analytics is rolling out what it calls a “significant upgrade” to its feature set. The new tools include AdSense integration, Motion Charts, advanced segmentation, an API, custom reports, and an updated user interface to highlight these new tools better.

Online publishers may be most interested in the AdSense integration tools coming to Google Analytics. After linking an AdSense and Analytics account, you’ll be able to see AdSense data including:
• total revenue, impressions, clicks, and click-through ratio
• revenue per day, per hour, etc.
• revenue per page (what pages are most profitable)
• revenue per referral (what other sites bring you profitable traffic)
The Google Analytics API, which is currently in private beta, will open up analytics data for developers to export and use however they want. Advanced segmentation allows users to dig deeper into subsets of traffic, such as “visits with conversions,” or create their own segment types. Custom reporting lets users create their own comparisons of metrics.
Google has created a series of videos showing how some of these new tools work.
