We just launched a new feature I have been working on over at Indie Labs. This feature allows stores to track pageviews and E-commerce transactions using Google Analytics. All of the tracking is done server-side so there is no code to paste into your store’s HTML, so it is really simple to setup and use.
In order to accomplish thist I forked the Gabba gem and did some modifications to allow for tracking transactions. Most of the work was in deciphering Google’s .gif params which is normally hidden if you use their JS API. With the addition of my changes, you can now track transactions and items, in addition to the normal event and pageview tracking.
I have to admit, Minecraft is addicting, my daughter and I love to play it together and figure out how to craft items, survive zombie attacks and build stuff. If you haven’t played it head over to my good friend BitBurner’s MineCrap.com to learn things like how to survive your first night, to making mine carts to haul your loot. He has some great vids called Bit’s Blocks where he and his kids play together and craft. It is great fun and a cool way to learn how to be productive in Minecraft.
I am seriously thinking about setting up a sort of office in my master bathroom. It is roomy, quiet and the fam will think twice about coming in there for something, well maybe not but still… Once you get past the occasional smell, it is quite peaceful in there.
