Google Analytics — New Dashboard

Google has devel­oped a tool to auto­mate the cre­ation of cus­tom-report­ing dash­boards for its Ana­lyt­ics web­site-usage track­ing ser­vice, the com­pa­ny said on Wednes­day.

The new Google Ana­lyt­ics Easy Dash­board Library lets devel­op­ers cre­ate these dash­boards with­out the need for them to learn the ins and outs of the Ana­lyt­ics API (appli­ca­tion pro­gram­ming inter­face) and man­u­al­ly write the code.

Instead, the Ana­lyt­ics Easy Dash­board Library only requires that web­mas­ters reg­is­ter to access the Google APIs con­sole, copy and paste a pre­built chunk of Javascript code and then tai­lor the code for the type of data they want it to fetch and the type of chart they want dis­played.

So now you can cre­ate cus­tom Google Ana­lyt­ics dash­boards very quick­ly, with min­i­mal code,” wrote Jee­tendra Sone­ja and Nick Mihailovs­ki, from the Google Ana­lyt­ics API Team, in a blog post.

Google built the tool in con­junc­tion with a team of Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia at Irvine stu­dents, and the com­pa­ny is now work­ing with anoth­er group of stu­dents at the uni­ver­si­ty to sim­pli­fy the tool fur­ther.

Google Ana­lyt­ics is a cloud-based appli­ca­tion that web­mas­ters use to mon­i­tor traf­fic on their web­sites and ana­lyze usage in order to deter­mine the effec­tive­ness of dif­fer­ent con­tent sec­tions and ads.
