Yahoo Launches Web Analytics

A few months ago, Yahoo! bought the Hugarian based company IndexTools. That was a big upgrade from Yahoo! specially to their Search Marketing program and to the Yahoo Small Bussiness users.

I have been watching for the re-emerging update, and it came in today. Of Course I will compare it to the only 2 Analytics services that I use on a daily bases, Google Analytics and StatCounter.

The only problem is that I am still waiting to get access to Yahoo’s Web Analytics, since it’s still in beta.
But I know this for now: The 2 features that I really like about the new service is this:
1. The real time insights that’s updated within minutes from any activity on your site and showing the visitors behavior, which will make me switch from Google Analytics into this service. (This is the only problem I face with Google Analytics because of the one hour delay in stats!)
2. The drag and drop filtering option (I wonder if it’s AJAX?!) that will add a rich user experience to the service.

Here is a video that I found on YouTube for a quick review of the service:
