    Morning all,

    I'm finally well into creating my very 1st BHW project which is a blog farm. As I want to track the traffic I am gaining is it a good idea to track all the domains under 1 google analytics account? I have a few 'proper' sites running under my google username and don't my farm to effect them - should i create a new username for each blog?

    Cheers

    maybe not each one. but for a couple. like if you have a couple hosted on the same ip. make 1 analytics account for those.

    Just make sure you arent connecting sites that link together for the purposes of juice generation under the same analytic account.

    I have found that google analytics is a waste of time with autoblogs. They take to long to set up, google has more info on your blogs, and it really is over rated.

    If you have a main blog you write content on then i suggest it. If your like me just use Stat Counter. Its not as good, but it has all the stats you need, traffic sources, seo traffic sources, countries. It sets up in 2 minutes too!

    @cashflowguy Amen. I use statpress for that same reason. if your using wordpress its a simple plugin and voila... all that stats u need for autoblogs.
