The Google+ Project

Social Engagement Tracking in Google Analytics & Webmaster Tools

  • Google announced on June 29 that Google Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics will now support tracking of the Google +1 button, as well as other social buttons like Twitter and Facebook.
  • For those of us who have already added a Google +1 button to our sites, this social tracking will automatically be enabled for that button; however, your google analytics javascript code will need to be “tweaked” to track other social network buttons. For these “tweaks” visit, http://code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/gaTrackingSocial.html.
