Is it possible to track two domains in one Google Analytic account?  I didn't find a question specifically answering this situation.

The main website already has a Google Analytic account at www.domain2.com.

We added a blog at www.domain1.com.

We'd like to track traffic all in one .. so we can see if anyone goes back and forth, etc.

Thanks for helping.  a.

You can add two domains to the one profile however by default they will not track visitor activity between them. The visitor will become a new visitor when they change domain.

It is a lot more complex to set up tracking visitors across domains as the tracking code has to pass cookie information betweens the domains, as they click through. Here's a starting spot for it:
