Google Analytics is a great tool, but it is really complicated to do things beyond the simple things. It’s very aggregated and you can’t look at specific users.

We implemented Google Analytics as soon as we started, but we finally got a person that is going to manage it. You need someone dedicated to it to really benefit from it.
