Scottish Developers would like to welcome a new speaker to the floor, Jarrod McGuire who has very kindly agreed to talk on installing Google Analytics.

The Talk

Google AnalyticsThis session will focus on sharing the experiences had while installing Google Analytics in various configurations, and some of the pitfalls, tips and tricks involved. We will cover basic installs leading up to more advanced topics such as cross-domain tracking – all using the new GA syntax. We won’t be focusing on the reporting side of things, although we may look at this if there is time. Some of the topics we will cover are:

  • What is GA doing behind the scenes?
  • A basic GA install and code explanation
  • Ins and outs of the _trackPageview method
  • Problems in a template driven environment with a focus on ASP.NET WebForms
  • Where to put the code in the page
  • Domain tracking
  • E-Commerce tracking
  • Event tracking

We are meeting in Room M402 on the 4th floor of the George Moore Building at Glasgow Caledonian University, Cowcaddens Road, Glasgow, G4 0BA.

After the meeting we normally retire to the back bar at Waxy O'Connor's
