Following Yahoo!’s recent acquisition of IndexTools, Yahoo! have launched their competitor to Google Analytics at Yahoo! Web Analytics. Yahoo! Web Analytics, like Google Analytics is free but boasts real-time analytics as opposed to 24 hour delayed tracking offered by Google.
Apparently the package is currently only available to Yahoo! Small Business customers who host e-commerce sites on Yahoo and Yahoo! Custom Solutions/Yahoo! Buzz Marketing advertising partners.
The IndexTools package that Yahoo! Web Analytics is based on was $400 a month so that gives you some insight into how powerful a tool this could be when used correctly. I certainly be trialling it in the near future so watch out for a compare and contrast article to follow!
