How to get the new Google Analytics interface

This may not work for everyone, but it worked for me… so I’m sharing it with a “your-mileage-may-vary” license.

Google recently updated the interface for Google Analytics. As usual, not everyone gets the upgraded interface at the same time, as Google likes to roll put their upgrades incrementally.

I track three different accounts through Google Analytics and only two of them were upgraded to the new interface (and of course, those are the ones I don’t really track on a daily basis). So here’s what you need to try:

The Hack:

Under the traditional Google Analytics interface, your URL will look like this:

https://www.google.com/analytics/
home/report?rid=<some_numbers_here>

Under the new Google Analytics Dashboard, your URL looks like this:

https://www.google.com/analytics/
reporting/dashboard?reset=1&id=<some_numbers_here>
&scid=<some_numbers_here>

So what I did was simply edit my URL to look like this:

https://www.google.com/analytics/
reporting/dashboard?rid=<some_numbers_here>

Simply replace “/home/report” with “/reporting/dashboard” and hit enter.

Let me know if that works for you!
