[EP-tech] Re: Google analytics



Kalimera Georgios,

I had the same problem than you and I solved with this javascript
code, it consist in adding an event to every download:

/* ----------------------------------------
   Onclick GAv2 Event Generator v1.0
   Denis Pitzalis
   DP: edit.  01/09/2011
   DP: mod. 05/09/2011

   TODO: track unhandled filetype
------------------------------------------- */
(function($) {
  var doctypes = ["doc","docx","xls","zip","pdf","xlsx","gz","ps","xls"];
  var mmtypes = ["wmv","flv","mp3","mp4"];
  var imgtypes = ["tif","png"];

  $(document).ready(function() {
    $("a").click(function(event){
        if($(this).attr("href").length) {
            var source = $(this).attr("href");
            var extension = source.substr(source.lastIndexOf('.') + 1);
            if ( jQuery.inArray(extension,doctypes) > -1 ){
                _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Documents', extension, source]);
            } else if ( jQuery.inArray(extension,mmtypes) > -1 ){
                _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'MultiMedia', extension, source]);
            } else if ( jQuery.inArray(extension,imgtypes) > -1 ){
                _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Images', extension, source]);
            } else if ( source.match(/^mailto\:/i) ) {
                _gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'Mails', "", source]);
            } else {
            }
        }
    });
});

})(jQuery)
/* END Onclick GAv2 Event Generator */

and it works as expected. If it work fine for you too, please tell me!

Denis
