    I have about 60 autoblogs up and running (Hopefully will make it up to 300 sometime in the next few months). 10 of my big ones that are not interlinked or using a link wheel are being tracked by G analytics. But I have heard rumors that I should not use G analytics for my autoblogs because, well big G doesn't need to know anymore than I do.

    Even though my Adsense technically links all my sites together for google to see, I have read here that you should not use G analytics for all your sites together on one username.


    -Any idea's how to track my sites?

    -Should I go ahead and use G analytics for all my sites? Spread over different usernames or all in one?

    -If not G analytics what do you use to track a large amount of autoblogs?

    As always thank you BHW, as I would not be where I am today without the community! :D

    Never ever use google analytics on your autoblogs. You're giving them a license to explore, analyze, and dissect your blogs. Read the TOS, it's all there.

    Personally I use getClicky for my analytics. I don't have any autoblogs up, but for my other sites it does the job for me.

    Good Luck!

    Are you using WP?

    If so you could use the statpress plugin, maybe?

    Yes all on wp. I will have to look into statpress.
    And Clicky I just found 2 days ago, I really like the Live stats! But you can only add 1 domain per account unless you want to pay. And I have better things to spend my money on...like more blogs :)

    Really the only reason I have liked GA is because there are many iPhone apps out there so I can check my stats when I'm not by a pc. And that it huge.

    Check out Piwik.org, it's perfect if you want to avoid using Google services. Personally, I always use alternatives to Google products, if possible. Especially, when it comes to anything blackhat. Use as few official Google stuff as possible.

    Isn't AWstats that comes with the hosting enough already?

    I have analytics linked to my adsense on well over 150blogs and have no problems for months now. Put it down like this, if G wants you banned they will ban or deindex you. I've gotten around 5 emails from 2 of my adsense accounts saying that they have reviewed my adsense account and sites, etc and I have only noticed more traffic from it... So if you ask me linking your analytics to your adsense account and to your blogs, shouldn't be a problem.

    The best way is register different account for each autoblog if you want to track using GI. Now they accept gmail, ymail, live and so. Inside each of GI account, add 1 IDENTICAL USER MANAGER and you can track all your autoblogs with 1 GI account.

    Example:
    autoblogA.com = abc@gmail.com = User Manager (mgr@gmail.com)
    autoblogB.com = cbs@yahoo.com = User Manager (mrg@gmail.com)

    Then you would be safe ;)

    Thanks for all the info guys once again! I have been splitting up my blogs under different GA accounts. Then on my iphone I can check all of them at once. Seems to be working ok.
