I suggest you ...

Google analytics

Allow inclusion of scripts or widgets to support hit tracking and other similar features that would be possible in most standard content management systems.

Hi Guys, Google Analytics is already available as part of our “Club Creative” package. You will need to enable your external domain name and then just add your Google Analytics ID to the control panel.

    How can I track cllick throughs of sponsor's links using Google Analytics - a clear metric to use as a sales tool back to sponsors.

    Have I missed something?

    Thanks for anyone's help.

    I also would be interested in having more detailed infromation as to which pages of the site are recieveing more hits than others etc

    Not just an overall log of visitors

    have you trieds using a second tracker and implementing Google Analytics rollup reporting?
    Have a look at: http://www.advanced-web-metrics.com/blog/2009/03/30/roll-up-reporting-in-google-analytics/

    All you should have to do is give us the option of adding our GA site and change your tracking code a little to look like

    <script type="text/javascript">
    var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl.&quot; : "http://www.");
    document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
    </script>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    var firstTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-PITCHERO_GAID");
    // Acc. for mysite.com firstTracker._trackPageview();
    var secondTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-CLUB_GAID");
    // Acc. for catch-all secondTracker._trackPageview();
    </script>

    Or have you already tried this and its not working?

    I'd be interested in knowing how many times each news item or report was viewed, rather than just how many hits overall

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your suggestion. Unfortunately, we use Google Analytics internally for our own tracking. We've not yet found a way to run two accounts on the same site without complications. There is basic information available in your WCP though....... are there any specific metrics you would like to see?
