Google Analytics for Mobile

Google Analytics has improved support for mobile device tracking and we couldn't be more excited about it!  The new analytics tracking works on all mobile devices, including devices that do not support javascript.  The result is high accuracy analytics for mobile web traffic.

We're happy to announce that Mobify has integrated these new Google Analytics features.  Adding Google analytics for mobile will take about 10 minutes if you don't yet have a Google Analytics account, or about 5 if you do.  To use Google Analytics for mobile, add a new profile for your mobile domain in Google Analytics (you'll have to sign up for free if you haven't already).  If you want your mobile page views to be distinct from your desktop hits it's important that you select 'Add a Profile for a new domain'.  Enter your mobile domain name into the form (you've created and added a DNS cname for your Mobify mobile view, right?).

For the last step, go to Mobify and select your site from the Dashboard.

On the services screen, enter the Mobile analytics id provided to you by Google.  Don't forget to change the start of the analytics id, UA-, to mobile, MO-.

After you've entered your mobile analytics key, it can take Google Analytics 12-24 hours to detect the new traffic.
