Google Analytics Off To Rough Start

    November 14, 2005

It looks like a hiccup developed in the Google Analytics launch. When checking your stats Google is providing an error message:

Currently Undergoing Maintenance

Google Analytics reporting is currently undergoing maintenance and will be available shortly. Your site traffic is being logged and you will be able to see the data after system maintenance has concluded.

I’m sure Google will get it worked out but this is unusual for Google. Most of their products such as Gmail were launched without a major hitch. I suspect that Google underestimated the quick utilization of the service by high traffic sites. It hasn’t affected the entire Google server farm because their search is still lightning fast.

Is anyone else seeing this message?
