Experimenting with Google Analytics and Arduino

Another entry in the Freetronics Instructables competition this week is an exploration into using Google Analytics with an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board. After being annoyed at some of Google's marketing, Instructables member PuZZleDucK investigated further into Analytics and has documented a method of feeding it data from the Arduino.

This is a clever hack and allows for data that can be captured by an Arduino to be sent to Google for display and some analysis as you would normal Google Analytics data. An interesting use and completely unexpected, so visit the Instructable to learn how. And for more, we're on facebookGoogle+, and twitter - so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're projects need a lot of Arduino I/O, more memory space and full Ethernet compatibility - it's time to upgrade to the Freetronics EtherMega:

Quite simple the EtherMega is the fully-loaded Arduino-compatible board on the market today. Apart from being completely Arduino Mega2560-compatible, it includes full Ethernet interface, a microSD card socket, full USB interface, optional Power-over-Ethernet support and still has a circuit prototyping area with extra I2C interface pins. So if your project is breaking the limits, upgrade to the EtherMega today.
