A few days ago I went to check on my Google Analytics data for the blog. I've been Dugg, Netscaped and Farked recently so I thought I might see just how much data accumulated from these traffic spikes. I was in for a shock!
It was not the sort of shock you might expect... There was almost no data!
After I moved my blog from Serendipity to WordPress I thought I had identified all of the template files that needed script codes added to them but I messed up. In fact, many pages only had some of the needed tracking scripts installed on them.
This is why I need to tell you just how important it is to look through the files in your theme to be sure all of your scripts are properly installed. Perhaps I might have to write a plugin for this?
Some scripts require they be in the head element, others need to be right after the opening body tag and some need to go right before the closing body tag! It can be mind-numbing tracking down what goes where.
So, as much as I wanted to write up a detailed report of what happened here on the blog I can't. The good news is that my Analytics page no longer has whacked out numbers and screwed up figures!
