Google rolled out a new feature in Google Docs settings page for tracking your published documents using Google Analytics. All you need is, just go to the Settings page in Google Docs account, enable the tracking option and add a Google Analytics account tracking ID.

After publishing a document, you'll see a small message: "Tracking visitor traffic with Google Analytics."

The screenshot below shows the source code of a published document: the first Google Analytics tracking code is used by Google, while the second tracking code is associated with your account.

The other hosted Google service that allows you to add Google Analytics code is Project Hosting. It's also easy to add the tracking code if you develop iGoogle gadgets.
