Analytics with infinite scrolling

We recently relaunched our website with infinite scrolling. The users love it, it's a really great user experience.

However Analytics shows a huge drop in page views. This is obviously because Google has no way to know the user has viewed page 2, 3, 4 etc.

What would be the most fool proof way to tackle this? I've seen some solutions online, but wondering if any of you have first hand experience with this.

Thanks

You can push each scroll as a page view on Analytics like this

_gaq.push(['_trackPageview', 'example-page.html']);

(That may serve the purpose, but it will bump up your total pageview count, so be aware of that)

I actually meant, push every data load as a pageview. I do the same thing on my search results for one of my sites, I've found it useful to view in real-time Analytics. The biggest problem is that you won't know when the user scrolls backwards.

How did you arrive at "the users love it"? Are there any metrics suggesting it? I am definitely seeing several eCommerce sites doing it but not amazon...
