Campaign Tracking YOURLS in Google Analytics


yourls google analytics campaign tracking 3 Campaign Tracking YOURLS in Google Analytics

YOURLS is a URL shortening service you can run on your own server, and it comes with a WordPress plugin called YOURLS WordPress to Twitter. In the past I’ve used WP to Twitter, but since it doesn’t support YOURLS I’ve had to switch.

I’ve asked the author of YOURLS WordPress to Twitter to add Google Analytics Campaign Tracking Code with a custom field for authors to add their own identifier, but he has been too busy updating the YOURLS scripts, so I’ve hacked the plugin code to allow us to use Campaign Tracking now.

Tracking Multiple Domains with Google Adsense Analytics Code


google analytics adsense multiple domains 1 Tracking Multiple Domains with Google Adsense Analytics Code

Bloggers, and web site owners, that have more than one domain name may be surprised to learn that they cannot track their AdSense statistics automatically.

Google purchased a web site statistics company called Urchin many years ago, and turned it into a free service called Google Analytics. Last year Google made it possible to link your AdSense account to Google Analytics. Domain name owners who had a single domain name, as well as owners of multiple domain names, linked their domains to Google Analytics so their AdSense traffic could be tracked, but there is an extra step that owners of multiple domain names may have missed.

First let’s check to see if Google Analytics is tracking your AdSense traffic. Go to the Google Analytics home page and login. You should see your domain name listed, so click the View report link.
