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
