Google Analytics for Mobile


Posted by on

Google Analytics has improved support for mobile device tracking and
we couldn’t be more excited about it!  The new analytics tracking works
on all mobile devices, including devices that do not support javascript.
 The result is high accuracy analytics for mobile web traffic.

We’re happy to announce that Mobify has integrated these new Google
Analytics features.  Adding Google analytics for mobile will take about
10 minutes if you don’t yet have a Google Analytics account, or about 5
if you do.  To use Google Analytics for mobile, add a new profile for
your mobile domain in Google Analytics (you’ll have to sign up for
free if you haven’t already).  If you want your mobile page views to be
distinct from your desktop hits it’s important that you select ‘Add a
Profile for a new domain’.  Enter your mobile domain name into the form
(you’ve created and added a DNS cname for your Mobify mobile view,
right?).

For the last step, go to Mobify and select your site from the Dashboard.

On the services screen, enter the Mobile analytics id provided to you by
Google.  Don’t forget to change the start of the analytics id, UA-, to
mobile, MO-.

After you’ve entered your mobile analytics key, it can take Google
Analytics 12-24 hours to detect the new traffic.
