On the Ask About PHP blog today there's a new tutorial (and a new class) helping you to connect your applications with the Google Analytics backend.
Iâ€™ve been thinking about how I can make use of this API to enhance the sites Iâ€™m working on. But before kicking off ideas, I had to find out how to access and use the API. I finally came up with a PHP class that will do all the grunt work of calling the API, you just need to supply your reportâ€™s parameter and the PHP class will return you an array of Analytics data.
The class [zip] makes connecting to the Analytics backend as easy as dropping in a username/password, defining which profile to use and the date range. The getReport() method does the hard work
