Google Analytics  pageTracker._addItem

Posted on 2008-10-23
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I am working to update my shopping cart to pass data back to google upon purchase.

The following code goes on my success page.

The question is....for the pageTracker._addItem(), do I need to add this info for EVERY product in my storefront?

I have 40 products, which would mean 40 entries of data in the html section of the product.



"InvoiceID", // Order ID

"AffName", // Affiliation

"InvoiceTotal", // Total

"ProductSold", // Product Sold



"InvoiceID", // Order ID

"SKU", // SKU

"ProductName", // Product Name

"ProductPrice", // Price

"_qty" // Quantity

Yes you do, otherwise, how will the widget know what it is to track?

Since all of these values are already in a database (I am assuming) - why not write a program to write those tags for you?  It would be much easier.

I am going to download to a .csv file all of the products. Then through concatenation add all of the tag info.

That should make it easy.

Would you mind reviewing this for me?

This goes on my front end site:

<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
<script type="text/javascript">
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-XXXXXXXX-1");
<script type="text/javascript">

The code attached goes on my sales success page.

<script type="text/javascript">

Could anyone help with this? My GA is tracking page hits and entrance paths, but is not passing keywords or any order information.

I would greatly apprectiate it.
