When I first started this blog (nearly a year ago) I was already fairly sure it would last a fair while, unlike some which pop up and are gone before you even realise. Quite early on I remember reading the Lifecycle of Bloggers and thinking, "nah...that's a load of crap. Just because I've been through steps one and two already doesn't mean anything". Suddenly I fear I may be well on my way to becoming a stats whore (step three)...thanks a lot Google! And it seems I have a fair way to go in my mission to concur the world.
For three days now I've been waiting and waiting for Google to deliver on it's promise of free stats for all. Every time I loaded up the Google Analytics page and logged in I was more and more disappointed with the lack of stats. Not only did it not have any stats for me, it also told me that I hadn't installed the tracking correctly when another part of the site was telling me it was find (and that reports should be ready within 12 hours.
Anyway, a comment over at photomatt.net tipped me off to the fact that even though the front page still said it was waiting for data, the stats were actually there in the reports pages.
I can honestly say I couldn't ask for more out of a free stats package. It's a pity the launch was such a disaster.
