The current Google Analytics account had been set-up by another party and we are looking at bringing this in-house. Losing historical data isn't a concern since this can be exported and referenced via other tool sets such as Microsoft Excel.
There is however a concern whether the set-up of a new account account with a new tracking ID will impact the current SEO standing.
Will this also require the set-up and configuration of the new webmaster tools?
Are there any considerations that need to taken on-board when undertaking this exercise?
