Hi,

I'd like to know "R" has something to do with Google analytics tool. Do they do the same thing?


Thank you

No. Assuming you have looked at the R home page, I'm curious how one might get that idea.

Hi Rogerio,

R and Google Analytics are separate things. However, there is a package that lets lets you access Google Analytics data natively from the R programming language. You can find it here.

On the other side of the equation, R is the most popular statistical package at Google.
There is a great blog on How Google and Facebook are using R.
