I found the "$ index" for each web page to be one of the most useful features in Google Analytics, but I can't use the new version (V5) that was rolled out a few months ago, because that statistic is now gone. Has it been removed? Why?

$/index has been removed from the v5 beta. It's not clear if its a temporary removal, or if its been eliminated entirely.

I think the concern had been that it was too confusing of a metric for people to understand.


According to a comment on this blog post it is coming but just not there yet


Regarding functionality that was "removed," the new version doesn't have all the features of the old version yet, but they're coming soon. $ Index should make it's way to the new version, but it's not there yet.
