One of the joys of using Satel­lite is seeing the complex things become manage­able and the simple things made easy, one such example is setting up Google Analyt­ics cross domain track­ing.   Setting this up should be an easy process but a quick search on google shows that there is a surpris­ingly large amount of infor­ma­tion, 1.4 million results, on the topic and it can become a confus­ing and frus­trat­ing process.
