I always wanted to try Yahoo! Web Analytics, but never met anyone using it because in order to access the product, it was necessary to be a Yahoo Business customer. So to me it is no surprise that this product is going away.
Everything I read about Yahoo! Web Analytics stated it was a good offering. I can’t understand why Yahoo! didn’t open access to the tool, except that it would have become necessary to devote resources to supporting it. Hopefully any new technology involved in the product will be used to enhance other products in the future – I hate to see this product go even though it was not really accessible to the world. I may recycle the book written about this product by Dennis Mortensen, which I purchased at Ollies Closeouts – it won’t be much use any more except as a paperweight. Goodbye YWA!
