We offer our clients Google Analytics. Whats the best way to set up?

1 - Set up an independent account with GA for them. New account for each client.

2 - Set up accounts on our Google account. On our account with client access.

I don't want to risk my clients been able to access other clients data or indeed accessing our Google account etc.

It would be nice to have all GA accounts in one place though.

Your experiences and direction appreciated.

Create a separate account for each of your clients, otherwise you run the risk of them being able to view each other's data.

You can create a 'master' account for yourself and simply add that as an Administrator for each account. This will allow you to view all your client's profiles in a single account.

No need for separate accounts -- I'm not sure what this "risk" is you're all referring to. Simply add their site profile to your account, and then give them "User" access to their site. This simplifies things for you, and allows you to keep a bit of branding in there (they'll always see your company name in the upper right, then pull their site down in the upper left).

Yep, what everyone else said.

It's easy to add yourself as a user on their account. That way if they ever want it for themselves or switch agencies, they can easily remove you as a user.

I used to have all my clients on one GA account. It was great.

However, now I have found that when they need

1) Webmaster Tools
2) Local Business Center
3) AdWords
4) Adsense
5) sometimes youtube
6) and GA

So it was more beneficial for us to create individual accounts and just keep a db of client log-ins.

If you only do GA, then yes, you should keep it on one account.
