Google Analytics a victim of its own success?

It’s now more than 24 hours since I put the Google Analytics javascript in place, and the interface still says the first reports will be ready within 12 hours. And all the help pages keep crashing. Also, it was really slow yesterday. Did they just have too many users sign up too soon?

Google normally have their act together and know how to scale, but Google Base also had a very bumpy start. Is this a new trend for them? Are they having trouble hiring top talent?

UPDATE: There are data available, they just don’t show in Safari (and the twelve hours thing is still there, 48 hours and counting). (Thanks ho Bradley at SvN)


I'm waiting for results too. I'm very excited and hope that Google will get their act together soon.

It did take a while, but my results are ready. First impression does however tell me that the stats are far from updated real-time.
