Default Configuring Google Analytics to track your Forum Runner mobile users - 03-08-2011, 04:32 PM

Configuring Google Analytics Support For Forum Runner

To get Google Analytics working via Forum Runner to track your mobile users, follow the steps below.

  • Create a Google Analytics account (if you do not have one) at http://www.google.com/analytics

  • On the Analytics Settings screen, click Add New Profile

  • On the next screen, choose Add a Profile for a new domain, and enter a "fake" URL, eg: "http://mobile.yourforum.com", and click Finish

  • Congratulations, you are done! Take note of the Google Analytics Account ID which should be in the format UA-xxxxxxxx-x.
Now that you have the Google Analytics Account ID, simply log into your forum's Administrator Control Panel, go to Forum Runner Settings, and look for the Google Analytics Account ID field and fill this field out.

Once you are done with this, any mobile users who connect via iPhone or Android will now send "pageviews" to Google to anonymously track their usage.

These "pageviews" don't map to a real URL but will look something like:

/thread/50188
/forum/42
/pm/1881

This means someone has viewed thread # 50188, forum # 42, and private message # 1881.

Keep in mind it will take up to 24 hours for information to be populated to your Google Analytics dashboard.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please post up below.
