I am curious to know why it's not something you'd like to work on. Many customers seems to like MailChimp because of it's integration with Google analytics. Looking forward to hearing an update!
Google Analytics is definitely something we'd like to have, however is hasn't been something our development team has been able to fit in with all of the other work they are doing. It is something you'll see in the future and we will make sure the feedback is passed on, it's just not possible to provide a timeline for this feature.
Thanks for posting about this here, we actually just launched it last Friday! Glad you noticed already.
It would be great to have a way to track the newsletter signups, i.e. a way to put our GA code on that thank you page. You still don't support that, right? Please email sackheim at gmail if you answer. :-)
We actually integrate with Google Analytics in the same way as all of those providers, by adding campaign tracking codes to your URLs in your Email Marketing Campaign. The one area we do not integrate with Google Analytics, which was the topic in the follow up post, is through our Join My Mailing List signup form. This is something we will continue to look at in the future. Thanks for the follow up post with that additional information though.
Sure, we explain how to set this up on our FAQ section where we explain our integrations we've done with other products. Here is the FAQ for setting up Google Analytics for your campaigns.
