Track AJAX Requests with Analytics

Google Analytics has included the ability to track AJAX requests for quite a while, but I don’t know how much awareness there is of this particular feature. Personally, I just discovered it the other day. I was looking at my Analytics data for a particular page on which I heavily use AJAX to replace all of the body content based on form selections. At that point, it occurred to me that, while I was getting good information about the numbers and types of people visiting the page, I wasn’t getting any segmented data based on the information they were requesting.
