Need a debug tool when setting up Google Analytics for your website?

While setting up Google Analytics tracking code on some websites, I came across this really awesome and very useful chrome extension called 'Google Analytics Debugger'.

This extension loads the debug version of the Google Analytics javascript and prints useful information to the javascript console.These messages include error messages and warnings which can tell you when your analytics tracking code is not set up correctly. In addition, it provides a detailed breakdown of each tracking beacon sent to Google Analytics.

Once this extension is downloaded from the Chrome web store, turn it on by clicking its icon to the right of the address bar. The messages can then be seen on Chrome's javascript console.

Till next time ...
