Asynchronous Tracking Code for Google Analytics

Yesterday, Google announced a new Asynchronous Tracking Code for Google Analytics. While initially in Beta, the code will allow for tracking of events before all the scripts on your page load. Should be a great improvement for rich media or large content site tracking. The new tracking snippet offers the following benefits:

  • Faster tracking code load times for your web pages due to improved browser execution
  • Enhanced data collection and accuracy
  • Elimination of tracking errors from dependencies when the JavaScript hasn't fully loaded
