I want to setup a Google Analytics Account on our website

http://www.cicd-volunteerinafrica.org/

I have made a file called analytics.asp
in the "default.asp" I have added <!--#include file="analytics.asp"-->

I have to questions:

1. Do I have to add this include file to all asp pages:
(like article.asp, textpage.asp etc) or is it ok to only do it on default.asp?

2. With and without www
    I have read that you can make a 301 redirect as a work around. Question is if I do not have this in place, do I have to temporary create 2 google analytics account to get around the problem? one with and one without?

Regards

Hi morten444,
Here are the comments on your asked:
1.Yes, you have to include this file in all the pages in order to let your google analytic able to capture your visitor landing statistic properly.
2.What you mean "with and without www"? Why you need to create 2 google analytics account? What you want to accomplish for this with or without www setting? Please clarify.

Hi Thanks

domain.com is a main domain
www.domain.com is seen as sub domain

If i on google analytics register the page www.domain.com i believe that maybe it will not register visitors entering using domain.com

Therefore my theory is that if you do not let google analytics know its the same page and if you are not using 301 redirection from www.domain.com to domain.com, I will have to create the 2 accounts in google analytics

Is that right?

Hi morten444,
You can monitor all the sub domain using the same google profile, or track it separately as you wish.
Please refer google analytic help file under Tracking subdomains section:
