Edit: Sorry, I meant to say “Google Insights,” not “Google Analytics.”

Google just recently, a day or two ago as of this post, merged Google Analytics Insights and Trends into one service and improved the embedable graph. This results in this issue when not corrected:

%{font-size:8pt}Entry this screenshot is from: Reaction Faces


It does seem some “newer” entries have this issue fixed and/or have the new graph at least:

What was the difference between trends and insights anyway? o_o
I never got that.

Trends always seemed to be way off compared to insights.

But now that they did this I have like 20 entries to go and replace those charts with. UHG

I think you should just leave it to sysops to run a script or something to change all the graphs, since they will have to do that anyway.

A lot of entries got their html changed automatically, so I wouldn’t jump the “oh noes, everything ruined” gun too quickly.

Looks like the problem is that the url parameters are not properly escaped. q=“reaction faces” should be q=%22reaction+faces%22 or similar.
Anyways, I just tried creating an embed url for this query on Google Trends, and it seems to work fine now. So I guess this has been fixed.
