I’m still finding my way around these, and I mostly only look at the most basic things like which Hubs do best in search and the ‘query terms’ in WT (and of course I’m transfixed by GA real-time!). Does anyone use GA and WT in more interesting ways – and has anyone written a good Hub on good ways to use the ‘Custom Reports’ feature?
Cheers (and sorry if this question has been asked to death before and I’ve missed it).
There's a Real Time part of it - where it has on the top orange bar 'Home' 'Standard Reporting' and 'Custom Reporting', if you click on 'Home' and then click on 'Real Time' in the left-hand menu, and then just below that click on 'Overview' you'll see in real-time the visitors on your site.
It looks like this:

Ooooh thanks, learn something new every day! Although since it changed to the "new look" I admit I don't use it as much.
I check traffic sources, patterns, keywords and their effectiveness, bounce rate, etc. Sometimes I check Real Time, which can be interesting to see what people are viewing, and their location..
I check Webmaster Tools for search queries, keyword significance and how they rank, incoming links.
It now has a new feature which allows you to download a chart of your most recent links, which can be helpful.
If you do a site search, you'll find various hubs written. Some of them may have outdated info. I usually go straight to the source to find out how to best use the resources.

When I first signed up with GA I used hubpages.com Later I added my subdomain address. However, my account is set up with property name hubpages.com and default URL my subdomain. I believe this is incorrect. Thus Webmaster Tools are saying that my sites are not verified. What do I need to do?...

Bing did a killer update to their webmaster tools. I really like the keyword tool.
