Social Reports and Backlink Data in Google Analytics
I explored the new social reports in Google Analytics and updated the post when Backlink information was added. I think there are two conclusions that can be drawn from this:
Links and social now count for similar things in the search algorithm
Google can pick and choose which features stick to their privacy policies and which don’t.
It’s great to see the links reports, but strange to see users faces, user names and the exact times that the links were created. Google are serious stalkers and now sharing their data, and I like data, but I don’t like being stalked…
