Hi, is anyone here familiar with the two different types of analytics tracking? Apparently Google offers two different versions - each having its own advantages.

There are two types of field events: jumps, and throws. ... the same group of athletes contesting a number of different track and field events...

I first time heard about the term tracking code. Is this any special kind of code which tracks something hidden.

Haha, hilarious, are you really in the topic??haha, this is about Analytics, not Sports Events.. :) No offense :D

-Back to the Topic: There is now these two types: The Classic and The Universal

Classic Analytics Tracking Code is the usual tracking code that every website owners are using, The tracking code looks like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-xxxxxxxx-x']);
_gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);
(function() {
var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;

ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://' : 'http://') + 'stats.g.doubleclick.net/dc.js';

var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
})();
</script>
While Universal Analytics Tracking Code is the new form of script by Google Analytics that is used to track the Data.

And it looks like this:
</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

ga('create', 'UA-xxxxxxxx-x', 'example.com');
ga('send', 'pageview');
</script>
The Advantage of the Universal Tracking code is that you can now see more Data from Google Analytics, like Demographics (Age, Gender..etc)

The Google Analytics tracking code is used only to examine site possession. No Google Analytics data is likely to be utilized.

When it comes to Google Analytics, it is universal tracking code and classical analytic code.
