Good news for all webmasters! The Official Google Analytics blog recently announced that they have opened up a dedicated Google Analytics forum within their exsiting Google Help which will basically allows webmasters like you, to ask questions about Google Analytics and have them answered by both Google employees and other expert Google Analytics users within the community. Its very easy to identify answers from Google Employees, top contributors, seasoned posters, or even new posters. The “Best Answers” are voted by the community and is given the maximum visibility. This helps the correct/best answers to stick on the front so that everyone can get and share the valuable information. When you search for a particular you, the forum also shows a list of “Related Questions” for your convenience.
The old Google Analytics Help Group will still be accessible for information searches, but is closed for new posts.
So what do you think of this new forum? I personally think that its a very good initiative by the Analytics Team. But I guess more participation from the users is necessary to make it a success. Currently its still very empty and as you can see in the screen shoot below a lot of questions are going unanswered without any replies.
