Google Analytics

I set up Google Analytics on two web sites at work. One is a test site, and one is the production site. There were quite a few problems setting it up; I gather from the support groups on google, and blog chatter that they are having a hard time meeting demand. I can totally sympathize. If my company's web site were dropped in front of 50 million users at once, we would crash and burn. Hard.

But the problem I'm having now is that I set up the production site and the test site. But only the test site has the actual javascript on it to activate the tracking. However, Google is reporting that both sites have had the analytics installled. So I think they are still having a lot of trouble.

I'm rooting for them. I still feel like Google is the underdog.
