Analytics Test…

Yes yes, there’s lots of talk on blogs at the moment about Google Analytics, so why am I mentioning it too?

Well, I have come across Urchin (it’s name in a past life) before, it was installed locally on servers as a part of the Ensim versions I had the unfortunate experience dealing with. Documentation was appalling, it wasn’t easy to migrate between servers, yet managers love it’s pretty little pictures so it had to stay. 😑 I wasn’t aware that Google had purchased it, that’s definitely good news. πŸ™‚

As a little test of Urchin with all it’s new Google added goodness, I’ve enabled it on this blog as a test. Integrating it with WordPress was painless, using the Google Analyticator. I initially tried to use the plugin Michele has mentioned, but it appears to be buggy when I tried installing it. Skimming through the comments on the plugin’s homepage pointed me to another plugin, whcih I had installed and running in less than 60 seconds.

Now to see how Urchin behaves, now that it too has drunk the Cool Aid…

    Sorry to hear it didn’t work out too well. I integrated the Urchin / Google code manually without any issues, so I couldn’t see any point in redoing it πŸ™‚

  2. I can understand that, but if you do decide to convert to using a plugin, the one I’ve used it quite nice and polished. It has it’s own panel in the WordPress admin control panel.
