Is it possible to have Google Analytics report traffic to a given page to more than one Profile ID? If so, are there any special considerations or recommendations for doing such? I can't seem to find anything about doing this in the Analytics documentation.

Can I just call _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-xxxxxxx-x']); multiple times? Or would the nth call just override the previous one?

As long as the UA-xxxxx id is different I can't see how it would cause any problems. I've chained three GA trackers on one site and had no issues at all.

Thanks for the info, nageeb! Did you include the complete tracking script three times, or just the _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-xxxxxxx-x']); line I mentioned above? – Brad Westness Jun 21 '11 at 14:55
At the time I wasn't sure, so I believe I added the entire script, but that wasn't necessary. See the link I just posted in the answer for more info. – nageeb Jun 21 '11 at 14:58
That's exactly what I needed. Thanks @nageeb! – Brad Westness Jun 21 '11 at 16:37
