Not too long ago Google released Google Analytics for Flash. My first reaction was one of happiness; finally some attention would be put into Flash analytics. But after looking into it a bit more I found out that Google Analytics for Flash wasn’t such a big deal.
On Google Analytics side, nothing changed; no specific stats just for Flash, just the good old interface we all know. On the Flash side, nothing changed much there either; instead of doing this:
You now do this:
tracker = new GATracker( this, "window.PageTracker", "Bridge", false ); tracker.trackPageview( "/somepage");
From the look of it, it’s actually more code than before.
What will you be using Google Analytics for Flash for?
Well first of all ExternalInterface works very badly with Opera (at least the ActionScript 2 version, haven’t tested the ActionScript 3 version). Searching a bit I found people saying the it worked sometimes, it worked when it wasn’t inside a mouse related event, etc. Well this isn’t very reliable.
