virtuemart google analytics with ppc

Good morning today we needed to add google analytics to a virtuemart joomla store. Heres how we done it.

Over on joomlacode.org Matthieu Barbe did a great job of creating a google analytics plugin. His plugin will work on every page. It shows the generic google analytics code for normal pages and for the shopping cart finish/confirmation will track a users order, price, items etc.

Visit joomlacode.org to download the original mod_gavirtuemart.

I have requested to join the project, but until that goes through ill post my modifications to the module here.

The module had a bug in several queries with user_info_id using the default or wrong id when a different shipping address is used.

Our SEO consultant Scott Orth for this project recommended setting up google PPC conversion code. To make life easy I added some settings and template for ppc.php to show only on the order thank you/confirmation page.

This is one of my first actual joomla module posts so let me know if it works, or doesn't.
