Adding Notes To Google Analytics

Posted by Pushonltd Pushonltd

In October 2008 I wrote a post about analytics annotations and my desire to have a notes feature included within Google Analytics. The post generated some great feedback and today I have come across a tool that does just that. It’s a plugin for Firefox so I wouldn’t say it’s the perfect solution but it adds an easy to use interface to analytics. The plugin is called GA Notes and was created by a company called Epikone.

To see just how this wonderful new plugin works you can watch the video below.

My gripe about it being a Firefox plugin is down to the fact that I have to install the plugin on all my machines. Quite often I like to view my analytics data on the move or view it on external machines. If these machines don’t have the plugin installed you can no longer see the data. A small gripe I know but I still hope Google will launch such a feature.

To download the plugin all you need to do is follow the link below.

Once installed you will see a new button in your profile toolbar.

I have found it pretty useful so far and would love to hear other peoples experiences of the plugin.
