Google analytics integration

I want to track all the data and user interactions through google analytics for my entire website which is built with rails.

I added a script that I found online that looks like it works but I dont know how to certainly validate that. In my google analytics dashboard it shows visitors coming to my page but never leaving the index page. I think its only tracking that page and no others because I went on my page the other day and clicked through some of my other pages just to test the analytics out.

does any one have a resource on how to implement this correctly?

Below is the script file I have in assets/javascript

class @GoogleAnalytics

  @load: ->     # Google Analytics depends on a global _gaq array. window is the global scope.     window._gaq =     window._gaq.push ["_setAccount", GoogleAnalytics.analyticsId()]

    # Create a script element and insert it in the DOM     ga = document.createElement("script")     ga.type = "text/javascript"     ga.async = true     ga.src = ((if "https:" is document.location.protocol then "https://ssl" else "http://www")) + ""     firstScript = document.getElementsByTagName("script")[0]     firstScript.parentNode.insertBefore ga, firstScript

    # If Turbolinks is supported, set up a callback to track pageviews on page:change.     # If it isn't supported, just track the pageview now.     if typeof Turbolinks isnt 'undefined' and Turbolinks.supported       document.addEventListener "page:change", (->         GoogleAnalytics.trackPageview()       ), true     else       GoogleAnalytics.trackPageview()

  @trackPageview: (url) ->     unless GoogleAnalytics.isLocalRequest()       if url         window._gaq.push ["_trackPageview", url]       else         window._gaq.push ["_trackPageview"]       window._gaq.push ["_trackPageLoadTime"]

  @isLocalRequest: ->     GoogleAnalytics.documentDomainIncludes "local"

  @documentDomainIncludes: (str) ->     document.domain.indexOf(str) isnt -1

  @analyticsId: ->     # your google analytics ID(s) here...     'MY_GOOGLE_ANALYTICS_ID'


Caveat: I didn't bother to read all your JS - I just put the analytics JS snippet in a partial and include it in the footer of my layout.


There is a gem to add google analytics. Check google-analytics-rails. May be a little old but old and new GA works almost in the same way.
