Amazon Flash Widgets and Add to Cart Tracking with Google Analytics (2 posts)

    Do you know of a way to get Google analytics to track the carousel and other flash based widgets?
    Do you know how to get it to track the Add to Cart button that does the form post?

    My google analytics event handling seems to track the search widgets, image links, banner links, and my favorites, but not the flash based widgets or the form based add to cart.

    All the flash based widgets are generated from javascript fetched from the Amazon servers, so I don't think it would be possible to get those to track in Analytics.

    The Form one you might be able to get to work, however it would probably involve converting the form to some javascript version, i.e. the button does not actually submit the form but triggers some javascript to process the form, trigger the analytics and then submit the form. Beyond the scope of my expertise I'm afraid!
