Fiddler is a tool that many web developers are common with. It is my favourite tool for debugging existing tracking code and testing new code. This video shows two useful functions for this purpose: Inspectors and the AutoResponder.
Fiddler is a free Web debugging tool. You can download it at fiddler2.com. Fiddler logs all HTTP traffic between your computer and the internet. That means you can view just about everything that is exchanged in the background while you’re browsing the web.
What makes Fiddler so great
The following video shows how to use Fiddler for Web Analytics purposes. You will learn:
- How to test existing code with Fiddler’s “Inspectors” feature. The use case will be the test whether a click on an application button really triggers the desired Virtual Pageview call
- How to try out new or different tracking code without having to upload anything to your server (no IT needed!).
