Google Analytics Pixel Generator
Useful for emails, embedding in pages, etc.
This is a tool for building Google Analytics image pixels (HTML IMG tags) that you can embed into emails to track opens, or embed into webpages, into ads, etc.
If you want to, you can simply enter your Analytics ID and the subject line of your email, and that is enough to generate a GA pixel! However, if you want to customize further, you can also edit the event action, category, and URL.
You can also use the "Fire Event" button to send an actual event hit to Google Analytics, which you can verify by looking at your real time event section.
PLEASE NOTE: GMail caches images (they started doing this in Dec 2013) which can affect tracking email opens. You might have to use the cache busting features of your email sender to get around this.

This will send an actual event fire to your GA account. You can use this to test by looking at the "Real Time" section in Google Analytics and watching for the event fire to show after clicking the button!
