Using Google Analytics Asynchronously

This post is more than 18 months old. Since technology changes to rapidly, this content may be out of date (but that's not always the case). Please remember to verify any technical or programming information with the current release.

I came across the following link on google’s code pages: http://code.google.com/apis/analytics/docs/tracking/asyncTracking.html

It basically details the asynchronous loading of google analytics. I found this to be a very cool addition to an already powerful package that I rely on.

However, one thing that I haven’t been able to successfully figure out. What happens when you want to load in two instances or two different accounts? On one of my sites, I use my own google analytics account plus the clients. This tracks the traffic fine with the non-asynchronous method. You simply make a new instance of the ga object and assign a new ID to it. However, can I do the same thing with this async method? I’m kind of wary to try it because I don’t want to lose any data.

Anyone have any experience or have any links to where I can find this detail?
