Can I see "___" Metric in Google Real Time?
Currently the Real Time API is more limited than the "regular" Google Analytics API. The benefit to the Real Time Widget is a 1-minute refresh rate, but the tradeoff is a more limited set of metrics and the lack of storing history.
Upon Refresh, My Google Analytics (Real Time) Data Disappears.
The Real Time widget does not allow storing of historical data.
Tip: We recommend the "regular" Google Anallytics widget, which will store your historical data and still has a fast & frequent 1-hour refresh rate!
