In Google Analytics, from the dashboard, clicking 'Content' in the left hand pane, and then clicking 'In-Page Analytics' brings up an awesome interface for seeing where users have actually clicked in the site. However, it seems to only bring up the root page. From there, I can navigate to other pages by clicking on the links myself, but I can't figure out how to display In-Page analytics for a page that I can't navigate to just by clicking, for example /products/red-shoes.

So, how do I change the url for which in-page analytics are being displayed? Hopefully there's just something simple I am missing.

Maybe not an answer, but maybe a solution. I find that if I turn on in-page analytics and then in another Chrome tab I navigate to a page on our site the analytics appear automatically. Mostly this is a pain, but it may be what you want. –  paulmorriss Apr 27 '11 at 15:12
    
Paul, I'm a little confused. You open a new tab, and by navigating in it, the in-page analytics tab navigates with you? Do you have a plugin for that? It doesn't seem technically possible. I just tried, and did not get those results. –  BigDave Apr 27 '11 at 18:09
    
I don't have a plugin. I agree that it doesn't seem possible, but it does happen! If it doesn't happen for you (are you using Chrome by the way?) then it's not a solution. Sorry I can't help. –  paulmorriss Apr 28 '11 at 7:47

I would try Paul's suggestion as i have experienced the same "issue" / solution. Its a pain when you don't want it but should help with the above. (no plugin required and works in firefox) –  Matthew Brookes May 3 '11 at 20:59

Paul is right, once you are in the report you can browse to other pages through a seperate tab and wait for in-page analytics to load.

yes it worked for me - I had analytics already on in-page diagnostics, then in a new window I opened my website and it immediately brought in analytics on the page and I could navigate through the website looking at the analytics !
