Re: What is Google Analytics ?

Google Analytics offers a host of compelling features and benefits for everyone from senior executives and advertising and marketing professionals to site owners and content developers.

Some of the Google Analytic features from business point of view are -

Advanced Segmentation - Isolate and analyze subsets of your traffic. Select from predefined custom segments such as "Paid Traffic" and "Visits with Conversions" or create new custom segments with a flexible, easy-to-use segment builder. Apply segments to current or historical data and compare segment performance side by side in reports.

Motion Charts - Motion Charts add sophisticated multi-dimensional analysis to most Google Analytics reports. Select metrics for the x-axis, y-axis, bubble size, and bubble color and view how these metrics interact over time. Choose the metrics you want to compare and expose data relationships that would be difficult to see in traditional reports.

Custom Reports - Create, save, and edit custom reports that present the information you want to see organized in the way you want to see it. A drag and drop interface lets you select the metrics you want and define multiple levels of sub-reports. Once created, each custom report is available for as long as you want it.

question Re: What is Google Analytics ?

I am a bit confused. In another thread the discussion is that this is a virus and it has hijacked the browser. I'm leaning toward that premise myself--as it redirects you to some ad-based webpage every click of the mouse. I am still looking for a remedy to this because it really is annoying.

Re: What is Google Analytics ?

Google Analytics is not a virus. But there are some similar malware which hijacks your browser and keeps you redirecting on ad pages. You will have to scan your system with malwarebytes. This tool scans your system and find appropriate malware infections for eliminating. Also check that there are no unecessary addons in your browser which are also some kind of malware and spyware.

Re: What is Google Analytics ?

Ok, here is the story which addressed on another thread.

I have a problem with malware-bytes. I uninstalled and re-installed it from a provided link. I still get same prob as before where it gives an error code "no address found." I can't update it. I ran full-scan with Essentials and it didn't find adware for this google-analytics issue. So if people tell me go with malware-bytes, I follow their advise.

I also looked for add-on's that I could adjust in browser. I saw one that said "third party." I'm not sure which I uncheck. Can you give me some direction on this adjustment?
