Google Analytics Partners Developer Competition 2010

October 25, 2010

We recently participated in the first annual Google Analytics Developer Competition at the Google Partner Summit!

Google Analytics Developer Award 2010

The competition was a fierce show-down between the best and brightest Google Analytics consultants in the Partner network (and therefore, the world), and the 1st place winner was poised to get all of the glory.

The Top Three Google Analytics tools were selected by a combination of the Google judges (the Directors of GA Product Management and GA Engineering) and the Google Analytics Partners based on the following criteria:

  • Usefulness
  • Complexity & Depth of Integration with GA
  • Usability & Appearance
  • Presentation Entertainment Value
