So how about using an IMG tag to track Analytics

Analytics with no Javascript anyone?

My last post covered how to inject Google Analytics into pages where it was not really possible to introduce javascript. by using a gadget. But what about the case where you cant insert a gadget, or you want some more granularity? It occurred to me that a creatively constructed IMG tag with some parameters (most web site creators allow you to link to images at least) defining what to track could probably go off and do the necessary tracking without the calling web page knowing it was doing anything other than serving an image.

Watch this space for a solution.

I am a Google Developer Expert and decided to investigate Google Apps Script in my spare time. The more I investigated the more content I created so this site is extremely rich. Now, in 2019, a lot of things have disappeared or don’t work anymore due to Google having retired some stuff. I am however leaving things as is and where I came across some deprecated stuff, I have indicated it. I decided to write a book about it and to also create videos to teach developers who want to learn Google Apps Script. If you find the material contained in this site useful, you can support me by buying my books and or videos.
