Where Did The Google Analytics “Old Version” Link Go?

For months now, I’ve resisted using the new version of Google Analytics, as it seems like it’s easier to find the information I’m looking for through their old interface. But when I logged into GA this morning, the link at the top right of the screen that said “Old Version” was missing!

So I mucked through the new layout, trying to find the information that I was looking for. It’s probably all still there, it’s just much harder to find what I needed. Thankfully, I noticed that Google hasn’t completely gotten rid of the old format, they’ve just “hidden” the link at the bottom of the page!

When you log into Google Analytics, scroll down to the bottom of the page. In the footer, you’ll see a link that says “Old version – Reporting“. And viola, we’re back in business!

No telling how long this link will remain there, but for now I’m a happy camper!

    Oh thanks for the info, I also can’t get used to new interface. Old one provides much more info on main page.

    I still have the link, but now, there is not way to see general view of all sites. That first welcome page was really useful with visits of all sites. Any ideas?
