Google Analytics full for the time being
When Google launched their web statistic web based service Google Analytics for free, their was a huge rush of web publishers signing up for the free service. Google had gained this service from a company named Urchin, which they had acquired a couple of months back. In its original form, Urchin charged quite a bit for the users. However, like most other Google services, Google Analytics has been provided to the end user for free as well.
Their was just this small clause which required any websites with more than 5 million page views a month to sign up for Google’s AdWords program to use the service for free. The service was such a massive hit that it took even Google by surprise. The results came late and the existing paying subscribers to the program were pretty upset by the delayed response from the service.
Google managed to get things back in order in a couple of days. However, the response continues to be so overwhelming that they have now stopped taking new applications for this free web service. Any potential subscriber to this service is now addressed with the following message:
Google Analytics has experienced extremely strong demand, and as a result, we have temporarily limited the number of new signups as we increase capacity. In the meantime, please submit your name and email address and we will notify you as soon as we are ready to add new accounts. Thank you for your patience.
And they are advised to leave their details so that the company can inform them as and when they reopen the service to new subscribers.
