MothersClick is a flourishing site that is growing very quickly. As such, tracking user behavior with Google Analytics is becoming very important as it helps to determine how to adjust the site to better meet the needs of our users. And now, as we prepare to launch our full ParentsClick Network of sites, we need to track what they are doing across our network of sites.

So I googled it and found a great post doing something very close to what I was looking for: Rebecca Murphey’s blog post on that topic. While this worked great for outbound links, it didn’t help with cross domain (or in-network links). So I modified her code a bit to check links against an array of our sites and adjust the Analytics code as necessary. The result was this:
Hope that helps someone else, makes tracking all of that stuff considerably easier.
