Written By Sam on 18 August 2009

Many of you must be using Google Analytics or a similar service to know more about your website statistics. But do you know that Yahoo is also providing a Yahoo! web analytics service as Google does.? Yahoo is providing a free full featured enterprise analytics solution which provides insights to demographics and category interests of your website visitors. Features like powerful and flexible dashboards, segmentation tools and campaign management features makes it faster and easier for online marketers and web masters. Yahoo web analytics is more than simply a reporting tool by storing data in raw. Historical data can be segmented instantly and can be visualized with advanced graphs. But the sad thing is that Yahoo Analytics is currently available for only Yahoo! Advertisers, Yahoo!’s hosted ecommerce customers and Yahoo! web analytics consultants. The good thing is that Yahoo Analytics will be available for all the users by the end of 2009.
