Written by Martijn van Vreeden on . Posted in Google Analytics

Joomla 1.6 seems to be up and coming, and fast too! We are really excited about the potential Joomla 1.6 has to offer to Joomla lovers. Joomla has made some excellent steps forward with this new version. Here are some cool new additions in Joomla 1.6:

  1. Improvement of administrator interface
  2. Granular access control
  3. Built in 301 redirect system
  4. SEO improvements
  5. Nested Categories

Unfortunately, Joomla 1.5 plugins won't be compatible with Joomla 1.6. To make life a bit easier for Joomla 1.6 users, we have developed a simple plugin to implement Google Analytics into their code. You can check it out in our section about Google Analytics plugins for Joomla. This lightweight plugin allows you to easily add the GA code into your Joomla 1.6 website and also select multiple domain and subdomain tracking for Google Analytics. Check out our documentation section to see how you can install the plugin.

One connection with Google Analytics is pretty new and quite useful: Google Webmaster Tools verification with Asynchronous tracking code for Google Analytics. The great advantage is that you don’t have to add any Google Webmaster Tools verification code or metatag to your Joomla template anymore.

Setting up subdomain tracking in Google Analytics for Joomla

Written by Martijn van Vreeden on . Posted in Google Analytics

Some websites use more than one domain or several subdomains to serve content to visitors.  You could for instance have most of your website’s pages located on www.domain.com, you’re your support forum is located on a sub-domain, support.domain.com. Google Analytics considers both of these domains as different entities and will not track them automatically. This means that whenever you visit both domains, Google Analytics will consider you to have made two visits, instead of just one. The same problem occurs with two entirely different domain names (www.domain.com and www.domain123.com).

Google Remarketing in Joomla

Written by Martijn van Vreeden on . Posted in BTBuckets

Google RemarketingIt has always been difficult to add tracking codes to different types of pages in Joomla. This has been of influence on advanced tracking of data. It is for instance not easy to add tracking code to articles in a specific section of the website or just to the thank–you-page of a form.

Google Remarketing

Google Remarketing allows you to show ads to users who’ve previously visited your website as they browse the Web.

When you use remarketing, you’ll tag pages of your site that correspond to certain categories you want to promote. For example, you could add a “TV” tag on all of the pages where you sell televisions. You can then create an AdWords campaign to show highly relevant messages (such as ads displaying a special offer on TVs) to people who’ve visted these pages as they browse sites across the Google Display Network.
