This new feature is getting activated across the platform over the next few days / weeks and is yet another amazing benefit of getting your Google profile activated with Authorship. As it first rolls out, Authorship Analytics gives you a very basic high level view of the pages you have linked with your Google+ profile and the sites you have identified as being locations you author at.
Oh… you haven't applied for Google Authorship yet? https://plus.google.com/authorship here's the link to kick off the process. You won't get instant approval, so it's in your best interest to apply now!

+Lynette Young I'm seeing my authorship stats in webmastertools already. The above one seems to provide additional data.
+Rajesh Narayanan agreed. I was actually going to edit this to say that these stats have been showing up in the regular analytics dashboard. The reason I'm so excited about this is because I feel that everyday users can more easily access their stats.
sure +Lynette Young those stats are really useful !
I actually only stumbled across the Webmaster tools author stats feature today completely by accident. It's great that they are setting out to make it a bit more accessible.
What happened to the rumor on the big blogs that Webmaster tools stats were coming down and moving to Google Analytics?
I can't get any of my Google contacts to say YAY or NAY?
