Add Notes to Google Analytics

It wasn’t until today that I thought it would be really nice to add notes to Google Analytics. For example, on a specific date I could make a note, “Changed background color.” From now on I’ll have an easily accessible record of site changes and be able to see how traffic was affected.

Well, I did a search and came up with a nearly perfect solution. Google Analytics Notes is a Firefox Extension that allows you to add notes via the GA interface.

The developers admit it isn’t perfect yet. For instance, the notes are only viewable in a spreadsheet format with no signification on the graphs themselves.

I made a significant change to a client’s website today that could really improve their search rankings and instead of having to remember when I made this change, it’s so nice to be able to have it in front of me each time I check their stats.

Hope you find it useful!
