Re: v.4 Tracking Code Migration Deadline is Approaching

For those of you Yahoo! Web Analytics users (formally known as IndexTools) currently running on the v4 tracking code, please read this message from the Y!AnalyticsBlog:

In 2009 we moved all of our legacy IndexTools accounts to a new data center, additionally we introduced our new v.5 tracking code and updated the v.4 tracking code. At that time we announced that v.4 would remain fully supported until July 30th, 2010. Well that migration deadline is fast approaching and we would like to again remind our customers to check their site(s) to ensure that they won’t be impacted.

Please note that when v.4 support ends YWA will continue to track sites utilizing this code but going forward there will be no updates, bug fixes or technical support for that version.

You can still access the original migration guides for Partners/Consultants and end users should you need to switch and our v.5 installation guide is another invaluable resource. Also, one of our YWACN members, Sally Knows, has put together a free tool called No Tags, No Glory which can scan your site and alert you to any pages that contain legacy tracking code. You can also contact us if you have any questions or are having issues with the migration.

Please note that this will not affect any users who became customers after May 2009.
