    That’s a really great feature, I’m still surprised we don’t see more social impact in the SERPS.

    Great to see lots more data and information in Google Analytics, but what are your thoughts on the fact that usernames and personally identifiable information is now in Google Analytics? I found it strange, I like to see the data but I think making it this easy to see is invading users privacy a little. I’ve put my thoughts here:

    Who says Google is being old, It is being smarter, now it will be easy for both search engine, as well as to webmasters to know and evaluate about their off-page activities.
      Well I am very happy with this recent news, And lots of thanks to “searchengineland” to give this news.
      Now it will be easier to track spam, and we can effectively fight with this.

    I can’t see this report in my GA, is there any code to manipulate into this site?

    Why don’t they just integrate Webmaster tools and save us all the time of logging in to two separate things!

    “This decision makes sense from a Google Analytics perspective as this
    information, like all other Social information, is a factor that happens
    outside the website”

    I never looked at it like that, since link building has always been under the SEO umbrella, but that makes a lot of sense! You can’t control who links to you, just like you can’t control who share your content on social networks. You can only track and monitor.

    Is there a reason my Activity Stream tab isn’t showing up next to Social Referral? Is it something I have to set up?

  • http://twitter.com/briminam Rubik Briminam

     You need to click on a specific Shared URL first. Activity Stream tab will appear then.

     i clicked on a specific shared URL, then i saw activity stream, then i clicked on events tab but i can’t see anything, is there any input that i want to set up?

    Doesn’t surprise me that Google puts this with the social analytics because that’s what inbound links were meant to be initially anyway, i.e., evidence that OTHERS liked you and that you were relevant to THEM. Google is in the business of giving PEOPLE what they want and who better to tell them than PEOPLE. So, yeah, I like that they seem to be classifying inbound links as social signals.

    hi, Daniel, after much fiddling around I managed to get to this:


    That should be a shareable link that takes you straight to ‘trackbacks’ (aka backlinks).

    Interesting stuff. I’ve just come back from an event in Manchester called SAScon, and it feels like there is a positive move towards good content and natural sharing. 

    Cheers for the blog,

    Interesting addition and I guess it shows that social is really influencing serps if Google want you to be able to see the data.

    This will be super helpful and for sure social is making a difference and rightfully so with the percentage of usage it has on the internet.  Most of all surfing is social and there are more and more social networking websites going up daily.  I think they will be the major factor in a year or so because of the buzz and analytics visible to every user on the web.
