I've been adding a coworker to all of our Google Analytics Accounts since she will be taking over the management and reporting for them.  I recently got this message after adding her to a handful of accounts.  Is there now a limit to the amount of accounts someone can have access to?  I've been adding myself and our 'master email' to all clients for years.  I probably have access to 170+ by now.  Has anyone else run into this problem?

I'm trying to get not only cross-domain tracking working, but also (2) multiple trackers.  The screenshot I attached has both in place resulting in errors.  I have tried a similar setup for multiple trackers without the autoLinker lines (require, allowLinker, and linker:autoLink) and had the same error - 'create' has 1 additional parameter.

Is this a problem with Tag Assistant and Universal Analytics?  Visits are still being tracked and eCommerce is being applied to the first tracker (which is expected).  But the GA developer docs described the multiple tracker method I have below.  Am I missing something which is causing the errors?


I have a question about setting up GA tracking code on a domain that only gets visited within certain pages rather than the root URL itself.  I'll explain:

I have setup a website for a friend under a sub-domain (  He want's that sub-domain to link to his page.  So going to that URL will immediately send users to his page and not trigger tracking.  

On his page, he links to (  This page has tracking along with all other pages on the site.  BUT, Google Analytics (and Webmaster Tools meta tag) can't seem to sense the tracking code since the root domain URL isn't a webpage and doesn't have tracking.

Short of setting up a redirect on the domain, pausing to trigger tracking, and sending the person on, is there a way GA can look at subpages for the tracking code?  His ways are convoluted but I have to respect his wishes.

Thanks for any suggestions.

New changes for the Goals setup pages.  I'm sure there are more coming to the rest of Google Analytics as well.  I also saw reports are arranged slightly differently - I was looking at Site Content for pageviews when I noticed the change.

I have been working on this Tic Tac Toe game as a beginner's project in JS. It's very simple so far, but the computer move responses should be pretty good. I played about 20 rounds a little bit ago and the score was 1-1. If you see anything glaring, just let me know.

Next is to add CouchDB integration so I can display all the moves people have been making and win/loss statistics.


I recently created a very simple Tic-Tac-Toe game (I'm still a JS novice) and wanted to add in tracking/data for moves visitors make. First thought was a simple DB to store and read numbers (numbers for each square, wins/losses, etc) then display them on the game page (updating on each move). A friend suggested CouchDB as a good jumping off point from what I already know.

Question to this community: Has anyone had experience running CouchDB on a Raspberry Pi?  

I assume it should work flawlessly (Apache and all), but I just wanted to see if others had any experience.  The reason I chose the Raspberry Pi is because I have one lying around I haven't found a good use for and my current web host doesn't really give me the freedom to install things such as CouchDB.  I can use the Raspberry Pi at home and have it always on and plugged into my router.


Hopefully Facebook mentions how third-party services can include their information in its new Graph Search.  I have quite a few friends who use Foursquare to "check-in" to a place instead of Facebook.  Being able to search this information would be amazing for finding mexican restaurants that my friends have been to and liked.

What are that chances that Google includes support for March Madness in Google Now?  Even if the they added support for upcoming games or showed some snippets of the bracket - that'd be amazing.  They'd go above and beyond if integration with top brackets hosts (Yahoo, ESPN, etc) showed how my bracket is doing.  I'm not a huge March Madness guy (I go off the rankings and gut feeling), but having this type of information shown to me while using my phone would be amazing.  

Hey +Google, what do you say about March Madness information in Google Now?
