The Query Explorer lets you play with the Core Reporting API by building queries to see what data you can get out of your Google Analytics views. You can use these queries in any client libraries to build your own tools. #GADevs

Since everybody and their uncle is talking about spam referrals in Google Analytics, I decided that I want a piece of that cake, too, even if I personally don't see the phenomenon as anything but typical noise you get in any data collection platform that relies on fragile technology (cookies / unilateral HTTP requests).
Anyway, I was bored last weekend and coded a simple web app that lets you automatically add three spam filters to any Google Analytics accounts you have EDIT access to. You also need to choose at least one profile to automatically link the filters to.
The only known issue I know is that if you try to run the solution on profiles where the filters have been already created AND linked to the profile, it outputs an error.
This is just a prototype, so again, use at your own risk. Nevertheless, the only operations that are performed are INSERT and LIST, so there's no risk of deleting anything.
Let me know what you think! Once I get the code cleaned up I'll put the whole thing in a public GitHub repository!
The data is derived from the Loan Goat resource (http://lonegoatuk.tumblr.com/post/107307494431/google-analytics-referral-spambot-list).

Plugins let you perform complex operations using just simple methods of the plugin object. Even if you don't know what they are, you probably use plugins already in the form of Ecommerce tracking, cross-domain tracking, or enhanced link attribution, for example.
Anyway, it's a pretty complex use case for Universal Analytics, but if you've ever scratched your head at things like tracker objects, race conditions with the global ga() interface, or integrating your platform with Google Analytics, you might want to consider using a plugin to do all the work.

This is an article which I hope becomes obsolete soon. Currently, the Google Tag Manager tag templates for Universal Analytics do not let you run arbitrary tracker interface methods between the 'create' and 'send' calls. These include stuff like loading plugins and accessing the tracker object after it's created but before the 'send' command is fired.
The workaround I'm suggesting involves a Custom HTML Tag (I know, boo!), which accesses the tracker object once it's ready, and then sends an event to dataLayer which fires your Page View Tag. This means that when your Page View Tag fires eventually, the tracker object is available for extracting the clientId, for example.
It's a pretty simple thing to implement, but I do understand that people are wary of moving back to Custom HTML Tags just when they've enjoyed the amazing tag templates. However, as I mention, this should be an obsolete workaround at some point in the future.
