Hello there,

Can I use two Google analytics code on my website, and use two analytics account? Is it permitted, or does google obstruct one? Thanks. Swayam.

Don't know the answer to your question.

But, why do you want to do that? I can't think of a reason.

The answer to the original question is yes, you can do it. Be sure to include code that resets the account number between tag calls. You can find more information on the Google Analytics help site.

Excuse my ignorance, but can you explain why you're using 2 Google Analytics?

Thanks

like this one?
_uacct = "UA-account-1";
urchinTracker();

_uacct = "UA-account-2";
urchinTracker();

_uacct = "UA-account-3";
urchinTracker();

I can think of lots of reasons. A shared shopping cart (two clients) is one.

sorry, i came back a little late to this thread... i wanted to do that for a very silly reason, assumed it was working. But then the one account got screwed up very soon...

it was not like urchin tracker # #*$!XX-1 followed by urchin tracker # #*$!xx-2

but, urching tracker # #*$!#*$! and urchin tracker # YYYYYY

so, if anybody is thinking of trying the same on your website for shopping cart or whatever reason -- DON'T!

Isn't that what the reset code (referred to above) was supposed to prevent?
