Great news, my buddy Tim Bakker told me Google introduced a new Change History feature. And when you login to your analytics account you will see this message:
With this new feature you will be able to see which account changed what to your account. This includes:
- Accounts: created, deleted
- Users: added, deleted, changed
- Goals: created, deleted, changed
- Filters: created, deleted, changed
In one word: awesome. From now on you can see if the requested goal changes are processed by your Web Analytics consultant. Or who applied a filter that blocked all data from a specific profile.
Just a quick post about the retargeting (remarketing) option in Google Analytics. July '12 Google launched a new feature in Google Analytics that made it possible to retarget a specific group of visitors. You only need to change this line in the Google Analytics Tracking Script from:
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://' : 'http://') + 'stats.g.doubleclick.net/dc.js';
The script will be loaded from the doubleclick domain and a third party cookie is set. That cookie can be used to target visitors on other sites that have been on your site.
