I have been using this method http://www.couchcms.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2778&p=3794&hilit=seethestats#p3794 to embed 6 GA statistics within the Admin Panel - and it is a nice feature for clients (many of whom I suspect would never bother to log in to GA directly - especially since it now resembles the control panel of a spacecraft).

BUT SeeTheStats have relaunched as a paid for service with no free option available. Not sure how they arrived at pricing - but $89 per year seems disproportionate and there is no way I or my clients would pay this amount.

Perhaps someone has already developed something using the GA reporting API? Or has some other suggestion?
