Google Analytics bug
July 23, 2006
Youtube, currently world’s fastest growing website, can be fun on a rainy day. But Youtube without analytics? No way! I found a very interesting movie from member Frunny. The movie shows two bugs in the current Google webanalytics system. I just tested it myself and it is true: Google’s webanalytics can be manipulated with a single mouseclick:

Video 2: Secret input field
It is not the first time that people complaint about bugs in the Google webanalytics system. Last November Nick Asters reported different numbers between Google Analytics and Urchin. He assumed that the instalation of Urchin and Google Analytics on one website caused the errors.
