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.
