Analytics for Joomla blog

Youtube Google Analytics

We love to share videos in our blogposts, like we did in our blogpost about Google Remarketing in Joomla websites. Unfortunately, we have never been able to be sure if you actually use the videos we share in our blogposts. This is important to us, because we want to be sure the videos have value to you, our reader. That's why we decided to look for a way to track our embedded Youtube videos in Google Analytics.


Segmentation is a marketing technique which involves grouping audiences into segments and treating each segment separately for promotional purposes.

like button trackingWe are really starting to love the work of Woopra. They shared a cool way of tracking Facebook Like buttons with Woopra by adding a small additional snippet of code to the original Woopra trackingcode.

So what we did was add this functionality to our Woopra plugin for Joomla 1.5 and 1.6.

For this code to work, you will need to use the javascript version of the like button, the XFBML script won't work. You can find a bunch of Joomla plugins to integrate the like buttons into your Joomla website. If you want to learn more about the use of like buttons, please check out the developers guide by Facebook.

Privacy is becoming an issue for Google. That’s why Google introduced a new functionality to Google Analytics called Anonymize IP. This feature allows Google to remove the last octet of the IP address if you implement this feature with your Google Analytics install. Google does warn that implementing this will "slightly reduce the accuracy of geographic reporting."

It is the webmaster’s alternative for to the opt out functionality integrated into webbrowsers. It will improve the privacy of users visiting your website, without losing lots of data or insights.
