No Google Analytics For You

A crush in demand for the now-freely available Google Analytics service has led Google to turn on the "No Vacancy" sign and set up a waiting list.

All that's missing are the bouncers and the velvet rope. Trying to crash Club Urchin isn't going to happen today, no matter who you know.

ZDNet reported 234,725 accounts for the free website analytics service have been created. That demand appears to be a bit more brisk than the search advertising company anticipated:

Google Analytics has experienced extremely strong demand, and as a result, we have temporarily limited the number of new signups as we increase capacity. In the meantime, please submit your name and email address and we will notify you as soon as we are ready to add new accounts. Thank you for your patience

It's not just the unwashed blogging masses being shut out. Om Malik showed up late for the party and couldn't get in either:

I wonder why does Google release products out in the wild and not be prepared for the worst case scenario. (Like the service could actually become a hit?)

Of course there is the more darker explanation - Urchin even when used for a single website was such a beast and siphoned off so many resources, that most of the users (like myself) simply relegated it to once a day update in the early hours of the morning. Is Google suddenly finding out that Urchin doesn't scale when being used by thousands of users.
