Google announced yesterday that they will be releasing real-time data on their Google Analyitcs dashboard. This is great news if you have a site with a lot of traffic coming in on a daily basis. This will allow you to gain faster feedback on information. Previously Google would take 3-24 hours to report the data back to you.
The bad news is that Google hasn’t automatically added it to your account yet. You’ll have to go to https://services.google.com/fb/forms/realtimeanalytics and sign up for access through the form. And then Google may or may not add it to your account sooner. If not, you should get it in the next two weeks!
