Due to changes in Google APIs my earlier post on using Google Analytics in R is deprecated. Unfortunately it is still on top 10 results for Google results for Using Google Analytics with R.
That post is here https://decisionstats.com/2012/03/20/using-google-analytics-with-r/
A more updated R package on Google Analytics and R is here . https://github.com/skardhamar/rga
A better updated post on an easy to use tutorial on using Google Analytics with R using OAuth 2 playground is here.
- Set the Google analytics query parameters for preparing the request URI
- Get the access token from Oauth 2.0 Playground
- Retrieve and select the Profile
- Retrieving GA data
Note it is excellent for learning to use RJSON method as well. You can see the details on the Tatvic blog above.
