Provides functions for accessing and retrieving data from the Google Analytics API.
This repo is the new home for the RGoogleAnalytics library migrated from Google Code SVN
RGoogleAnalytics is a R Wrapper around the Google Analytics API. It allows fast and easy data extraction in R so that further statistical analysis can be run on the data
Provides Access to v3 of the Google Analytics Core Reporting API
Ability to pull more than 10,000 rows of data in batches via pagination of queries
Ability to mitigate the effect of Query Sampling by splitting the date-range of queries and hence extract (nearly) unsampled data
Ability to cache data fetched from Google
Supports authorization via OAuth 2.0
In cases where queries are sampled, the output also returns the percentage of sessions that were used for the query
To get the current development version from github:
httr handles the underlying OAuth2.0 Authorization flow and the API requests
lubridate handles the date manipulation logic underlying Query Partitioning
Work on RGoogleAnalytics was started by Michael Pearmain at Google. He was supported by Nick Mihailowski (Google) and Vignesh Prajapati (Tatvic). Current package in CRAN is maintained by Manuel de Francisco Vera (HotelSpecials)

Query Feed Explorer allows you to test your queries for syntatical correctness. Once verified, the query parameters can then be copied to your R Script
