Seth Meranda replied to Terry Boehmker's discussion Google Analytics conglomerate tracking
"A few problems with your implementation (taken from view-source:http://hr.nku.edu/) You need to set the same variables on both trackers. For example, if you use _setDomainName on one, it has to be used on the other as well. Only load the ga.js file…"

This will give us a opportunity to set up a Google Analytics conglomerate account that can track all the websites and give us numbers on total traffic across the CMS. I've been experimenting with a conglomerate tracking account in our present CMS by adding a secondset of Google tracker code with a different profile number to our multiple sites / sub-domains.I started by adding the second set of…See More

"While not the same level as Google analytics we use AWStats to aggregate all our sites into a single report. I've yet to find anything that really does a better job."
