The lates version of YWA is out, it’s actually the first version of the YWA after they bought Indextools and it’s called Yahoo Web Analytics 9.5. There have been some issues with the data micration, but now that the tool is through I can’t say anything else that I am liking the first version and even more so looking foward to the version number 10.
Most notible added features in the tool are the new Age and Gender demographics but I am really happy with is the Interest Group Catagories. Here Dennis Mortensen and his team at Yahoo! Web Analytics has designed a set of categories which enable the user to form a better profile of visitors to their site. The Interest Categories reports are used to show the most common Interest Groups site visitors belong to. Another “new” feature, or I should say upgraded feature is the visitor click Path analysis it’s looking much much better. It’s actually usefull now.
