Website Analytics - Tracking and Logging Forum

More than One domain name on google analytics
need advice on tracking more than one URL

 8:26 pm on Nov 12, 2008 (gmt 0)

I've just picked up a client who owns a half dozen apartment hotels in the same resort area. They have six domain names, one for each hotel, but only a few pages on each url. I am making optimization changes and want to use google analytics to track performance. Can I use Google Analytics to track 6 different urls? If so, are there any suggestions of how to do so?

Yes..You can use Google Analytics code for the six domains from the same account. This can be done by adding different website profile for the 6 domains. by doing this you will be getting six different codes to track each domain individually.

Thanks for the advice. It appears that 3 of the domains are at GoDaddy and apparently GoDaddy requires Analytics be added through their account panel rather than via a google account.

Masterwebman, you shouldn't be stuck using GD's analytics. We have a slew of domains with GD and we use whatever analytics we choose to use.

I don't plan on using GoDaddy's Analytics. I have been using google analytics on a number of sites lately. I normally don't host anything at godaddy, although I have a number of domains registered through them, but that's where the client has them hosted.

masterwebman, we have one of our websites hosted by GoDaddy. I added GA code into our website without going through GoDaddy and had no problem. So, we don't have to ask GoDaddy's permission to do so.

Website profiles are actually for subdomains of a domain. If you will do this you will not have proper results and everything will eventually mix up.

You need to create new account for each website. You can see the "Create New Account" option against the "My Analytics Accounts:". You don't need a different email for each account. You can make as many accounts as you want using same email.

No, website profiles can be used for new domains.

Thanks, I setup 4 domains under their existing account. Each one has a different tracking number so I think I am okay.
