I have a client that is using classic GA (see code below). I understand Universal is the way to go - how do i switch from classic to universal?

 

<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://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
})();

</script>

Hi Jeff,

I have personally faced a lot of issues with Universal analytics as it does not support all features as GA and hence suggest to stick to classic GA only. However, here some references which discuss both the cases -

Let me know how you proceed.
Best of luck!
