Avisnash recently made a great blog post on weighted sort in Google analytics.. http://www.kaushik.net/avinash/2010/09/end-dumb-tables-web-analytics-tools-weighted-sorts. html

Why is it that GA - a free tool - is always pushing the boundaries and coming up with innovative(ish) new product features (including animated bubble charts etc.) if only Omniture could keep up... Smiley Mad

Please please please implement this. I've been trying to find a way to accurately approximate this myself but haven't been successful yet.

For example, sorting pages by Visits per Visitor but only for pages that have minimum visitors. Currently you must copy the subset of data you want into excel and then sort, in order to quickly filter out the extreme ouliers.

Hi Benjamin

 

I hope you had time to look into this. Again, this is about 4 years ago when the status changed.

 

thanks

Hi @MichaelH , we are absolutely still looking at this issue. I can't comment on an ETA, but it is absolutely something we are discussing.

With today's calculated metric builder, you can use functions to create weighted metrics for any event captured. Additionally, we have included some metric templates in the builder for weighted bounce rate.
