It’s beginning to look a lot like? It’s the end of the first year of Google Analytics!

It’s beginning to look a lot like? It’s the end of the first year of Google Analytics! That’s what it’s beginning to look a lot like! It’s also the end of the second month of Google AdSense.

No, it’s not Christmas, especially for Analytics. Even though ABSOLUTELY NO SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION, USER INTERFACE OR CONTENT PLAN was used, I overestimated the growth as we gained less than 100%, year over year.

As for AdSense, I will publically admit to having earned revenue in June. Great!! Now growth expectations!
