Perhaps this is just Google messing with us. I searched on "web analytics" and received the hashed up response above, and obviously others have stumbled on this too. How many individuals in our industry (SEO, Web Analytics, SEM) have spent (wasted?) time figuring this out in the past few days? And their only response thus far has been to point us to a blog post from 2006?
It sure seems like they could be a bit more transparent on this.
