Tracking 404 Pages with Google Analytics



Switching blogging platforms has introduced me to some unique problems and some cool tools. One of the problems I had to find a solution for was tracking 404 errors using Google Analytics. As GA is a script based analytics tool, I figured I would need to find a new solution that used the site logs instead.

A quick “google” later and I discover Google Analytics has already thought of this problem and created a solution.

So, for all of GA users, here’s your solution for tracking 404 errors, whether you’re switching blog interfaces, or not. :-)

    no criticism, was just wondering ;) However, maybe i’m mistaken (probably :p), but i don’t see it in your code..? I mean, the urchinracker seems normal and does not contain a url of a 404 page or am i looking at the wrong place :p
