I believe that Omniture is really happy about Yahoo buying Indextools or as stated on their site “We at Omniture congratulate IndexTools and welcome Yahoo! back to the Web analytics business. Let’s be clear though: this move by Yahoo! was done to compete with Google. IndexTools does not compete “toe to toe” with Omniture.”
Yahoo it seams is not going to go the Google / MSN way with web analytics, but to provide a fully functional enterprise web analytics tool for clients around the world for free.
What happens to Omniture, Webtrends or any of the guy’s selling their tool when a tool like Indextools enters the market and for free.
