It's pretty awesome the amount of information that one can get via analytics, but it's a bit hard to determine just what all information is valuable and why.

I never was able to set it up properly; I never really tried though, and I know that it's fairly accurate. I prefer using site specific stat tracking, though I may sign up soon since Suite's stats are being removed.
I have been using Google Analytics personally and professionally. Granted the current upgrade is very similar to their enterprise version. It is easy to install on a site. (Make sure it is on every page.) The data being returned has helped in terms of optimization. I am in the process of preparing to take their certification exam.

Stats have updated three times today. The one day, seven day and 30 day totals have changed but the 'Page Views Ever' have remained the same with each update. The last time this happened (in October) I lost 15,000 views in the 'Page Views Ever' total. What's happening now with...
