I am about to update the from urchin to ga, but I am not sure how much I have to change.

Is it enough just to change the [google-analytics.com...] to
[google-analytics.com...]

or do I have to make further adjustments?

Any info is highly appreciated :-)

you need to replace the entire javascript snippet and possibly specify new and different parameters.
the G Analytics tracking code migration guide (pdf) [google.com] is a good place to start.

Thanks - in the meantime I found the pdf above and it explains the update quite nice :-)

Hi guys,

Wouldn't bother but is a valid route to the 'cut and paste' snippet from Google:

When I log into [google.com...] and choose the 'edit' link to the right of the 'view reports' link I go to where i can set up the goals.

On the top right hand corner of the top table, displaying goal setup info and edit links, is a link 'check status'. I click that link and I'm on a page that offers me the 'legacy tracking code' snippet on one tab and the 'new tracking code' on the other tab.

Regards,
robsoles.
