Analyze Your Success With Google Analytics

We have just released as a beta a new feature for our online affiliate program: Support for Google Analytics!

Ever wanted to track how many people click through from the links you create? Want to know how many sales your links are generating? Now you can.

Google Analytics will also track the sales conversions from the traffic you send using it’s E-Commerce options!

If you aren’t familiar with Google Analytics, they have ample material on their site on how to use their service. It’s free and provides detailed reports.

To get started, simply do the following:

  1. Create a Google Analytics Account, if you don’t already have one.
  2. Take note of your account code, which starts with “UA-” and appears in the HTML that Google gives you to put on your web site.
  3. Log into your Scientology Online Affiliate Account and create one or more affiliate codes.
  4. Using the information provided on this site, create your links.
  5. At the end of your links, include the URL parameter “gaacct=UA-XXXXXX-XX” where the Xs are replaced by your Google Analytics Code. For example, if your Google Analytics code is “UA-123456-AB” and you have a link to the Dianetics Book and Oakland Lectures, your link would read: “http://joe.fsm.org/items/dmsmh_oak.html?gaacct=UA-123456-AB”.

That’s it! Just append the “gaacct” parameter to your links and Google Analytics tracking is turned on for your tracking code for the remainder of the user’s browser session (meaning until he closes his browser or has a half an hour of inactivity).

  1. Hi-
    I’ve tried to sign on to the program but never got any confirmation email. When I tried again, I got a message that the account had been disabled.

  2. Hi Valerie, Thanks for the message. Your account was activated last week. The reason you never received your confirmation message and didn’t get my reply is because Comcast is incorrectly blocking mail from our (and many other) mail servers and so I had no way to contact you. We have been thus far unable to resolve this. If you, as a Comcast customer could complain to them and get them to let our mail through that would be helpful. But in the mean time you should be able to log in now.

  3. Great site!
    I have a Blog and now my friends can find Bridge Publications
    http://kathysmith-dvdpro.blogspot.com/index.html
    that helps artists and they now can find the
    value through the BASIC BOOKS by L. Ron Hubbard
    and gain the tools needed for success.

  4. Just what I wanted, this will make it really easy to analyze my stats on this. Thanks a ton!
