New Google Analytics Reporting Features

Google Analytics has implemented a number of new features (which you may or may not see in your account yet, since they are in beta). I haven’t had the chance to play around with them, but this is what they look like:

The final new feature I found is Customized Reports, allowing you to quickly look at the data you find important – for instance, how your keywords are performing in a particular market:

With this newfound flexibility, Google Analytics bridges the gap to more expensive analytics solutions.
