Analytics best practices set up question Google Analytics, Website Optimizer and Yahoo Analytics kurto msg:4092331 8:15 pm on Mar 5, 2010 (gmt 0) Do Google Analytics, Website Optimizer, and Yahoo Analytics play nice with each other? I am new, and am wondering if I am doing this right, or if there is a better way. I am building a list. I am driving Yahoo PPC traffic to a landing page. I have two versions that alternate with Google Website Optimizer scripts. I also have Google Analytics script on the pages using the "new asynchronous tracking code." I have a goal set up--getting to the Thank You page. I also put the Yahoo Analytics code on the pages, as well as conversion tags on the Thank You page. I did this because I thought it would help me manage my Yahoo PPC better. Is this a good idea? Is it totally redundant? Can I have this much script all over my pages? I plan to set up an MSN/adcenter campaign to a separate set of landing/Thank You pages. Should I use Google Analytics on all the pages? Should I set up a different profile? I also plan to run Google AdWords traffic to a blog to opt in, because of the low quality scores on landing pages. I would appreciate any help you could offer. Thanks. Am I

You should be able to use any single analytics package to track all your campaigns with a little thought. Although there is nothing inherently wrong in using multiple tracking codes - it might become a little unwieldy over time.
