Dual Google Analytics – Classic Analytics

Sometimes there are reasons to have two sets of Google Analytics on a page, or a website. For those occasions, here is the format for tracking for two Google Analytics Classic properties (not Univseral Analytics). Simply replace UA-######-A and UA-######-B with the two Google Classic Analytics property IDs.

Watch out for fancy single and double quotes, although they might look nice in the blog, they might stop the code from working! I just checked myself and it looks fine, but I may be using a different computer & browser combination than you. If your code does not work after copy and pasting it, make sure all of the quotes you copied are normal quotes and not fancy quotes.

<script type="text/javascript">
   var _gaq = _gaq || [];
   ['_setAccount', 'UA-######-A'],
   ['b._setAccount', 'UA-######-B'],
   (function() {
   var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
   ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
   var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

Cool Website Design – Smart USA (the Eco Friendly Car)

I saw a commercial for the Smart (the unbig, uncar) tonight and hit their website for a nice surprise. Its not the best website ever, but its home page is super-interesting. If you don’t like it you can visit the Smart’s eco-friendly high mpg full website.

I don’t often write about websites, but this one is just pretty cool. I think for its intended audience – the group of car buyers that would want an eco-friendly, small, inexpensive automobile that for as little as $12,490 – the website is probably right up their alley. However, at 41mpg you may be more impressed with its 85% recyclability (just toss it in with the aluminum cans when done?)

I’m not writing about the technical marvel of the site or excellent usability here, but simply entertaining design,  take a look.
