I was just asked today if WASP 2.0 tracks Google Analytics events. Yes, it does!
So, take for example the following html code:
<a href=”#”color: red;”>pageTracker._trackEvent(‘Video’, ‘Play’, ‘Escape from New York’); alert( ‘Successfully called pageTracker._trackEvent()’ );”>Video, Play, Escape from New York</a>
In this example, a link to play a video, we want to pass specific information to GA to track a specific video being played.
Once you click on this link, if you look in the WASP sidebar you will see the Google Analytics call being made and all the data being transmitted. If you look carefully, the tag UTME will have the value you are looking for:
So, even if the event is not triggered on page load, WASP will still catch it at the moment it is fired. This also applies to other events such as flash animation and more.
