The general Google Analytics usage looks like this.

Code: [ Select ]
<script src='http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
_uacct = 'UA-1234567-8';
urchinTracker();
</script>
  1. <script src='http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js' type='text/javascript'></script>
  2. <script type='text/javascript'>
  3. _uacct = 'UA-1234567-8';
  4. urchinTracker();
  5. </script>


I haven't looked into urchin.js yet, but it would seem that I could call the urchinTracker method & register the statistics for the same page again.
Somthing I don't know about, is if Analytics will register this "refresh" as the same page visit, or a new page visit.

The reason I want to know about this is I'm putting together an alternative template for the upcomming phpBB3 that is constructed entirely with Flash for power users.
This is a single fluid Flash movie that loads other movies as modules as needed & fetches topics/forums/ucp/ect as XML instead of the normal HTML.
In doing this, it's going to also skew Analytics results since the forums index page is loaded once for the entire visit.
I already know how to get Flash to call that urchinTracker method & do things like change the current page title from within the Flash movie, but I'm not sure about what's going to happen if I do.

It's been a few months, but I found exactly what I needed to know.

Google Analytics, Outbound Links, & jQuery.
