It's a cool tool for Flash/Flex developers, but they know they already were able to track user events without that ;)

Does somebody know, how Google Analytics should be handled in AJAX applications (like Google Maps or sth similar)?

Grega, from your JavaScript you can use calls to the Google Analytics API, like this:

if (pageTracker) { pageTracker._trackPageview('/analytics_api/foobar/'); }

... provided you included the Analytics tracker snippet in your HTML page. Something like the following (but copy it from Google Analytics):

<script type="text/javascript">
[snip]
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-...");
pageTracker._initData();
pageTracker._trackPageview();
</script>

You'll then see the stats for these calls in the Analytics content-by-path box, in this case, the path would be "/analytics_api/foobar/".

Phillip,

I thought you may want to feature this on your blog: http://www.deanhunt.com/googlespoof.html

If google pagerank could sing ;-)

See also this add-on to Google tracking code for Flex. The add-on will perform tracking automatically saving you from writing trackPageView() calls manually:
