After Google acquired Urchin and named it Google Analytics the stats package was only available to approved users. I’ve had access to Analytics for my blog for quite a while. Although, the stats info interface is nice, there’s really too much information for bloggers. I use Mint which provides the information I need in an easy to read interface.
Analytics, in my opinion, is for heavy e-commerce sites and Google AdWords users. These folks are generating money from their sites. They need to work with info gleaned from stats while most of us do not.
