More Profiles Means More Control

August 1, 2006

It's official. Google has increased the number of default profiles for a Google Analytics account from 5 to 10. Why does that mean more control?

Well, with more profiles comes the ability to restrict a user to only those sites for which they need access. You can track subdomains and subdirectories separately in a new profile, and if you've filled up the four goals available in your main profile, just create a new one for the same website and set up some new goals. You don't even need to change the tracking script on your webpage.

Do they allow the migration of profile between accounts?

I believe many people sign up for more than 1 account to get past the 5 profiles limit.

Good question, Ken. Currently, there's no way to migrate profiles from one Google Analytics account to another. This is definitely a feature that would be immensely useful, but with the 1:1 AdWords-to-Analytics account ratio, I'm not sure how feasible it would be.

We'll certainly keep you posted with any updates that we come upon.
