I have a site I have been working on for a while and we have just launched 5 sub domains, we are aware of the branding implications of doing this and its a real positive for us, we are looking at adding a sixth sub domain closer to Christmas (a seasonal one).

The biggest complication I have with these is tracking, at the moment I have a tracking package on eack of the sub domains and each of these subs requires me to log into a different admin area t hvae a look at the traffic.

I wondered if it would be possible for me to use an analytics package to track all of the sub domains from one logged in interface, as the sub domains have a few few pages on them I could even cope with them all been reported as a single site.

For example if analytics could report on wwww.mysite.com, sub1.mysite.com and sub2.mysite.com from the same account as if it was a single site I would be happy with this, does anyone know if it is possible?

Also, the majority of the traffic soming to these sites will not be coming from natural search, however I do expect to pick up a little natural traffic. IT would be useful if I could setup webmaster tools to report on the sub domains but not on the main domain in a seperate account in some way so that I can see any terms that the sites rank for which I can then focus on - I will not make a special seo effort on the sub domains but if I start to rank in the top 30 for something that I have given little effort to then I think its worth persuing.

Ay feedback is appreciated.

Sure, just put the same Google Analytics code on all the pages. You may want to set up different profiles for each, however, as well.
