A year ago we’ve published a list of 30+ Google Analytics tools and resources. It was one of our most successful posts ever. The list has been even nominated for a SEMMY award. I’m not sure I can top that but I can provide a new list of 30+ more Google Analytics tools, apps, tweaks and other resources.
Google Analytics is still one of the most popular tools for SEO practicioners and webmasters alike.
It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in you either already use Google Analytics or you should in future.
There are many alternative web analytics providers for those who prefer non-Google products for privacy reasons but to be honest: I’d rather give up on Google search for privacy reasons than Google Analytics.
The links in this post are either new (published after the last years post went live) or they weren’t on the other list. Some of the links might have been indirectly included as it was also a meta-list with several resources’ lists. Also this time I’ve included apps for mobile phones and some paid software.
