This can be really tricky to get right when you have a more complicated site with lots of domains.  Since you are all on .yale.edu it should be easier than crossing .cdlib.org to .universityofcalifornia.edu.  If I understand correctly, you should be able to 
_gaq.push(['_setDomainName', '.yale.edu']); on every page and it should work.

This debugging plugin for chrome is pretty useful

It will help you confirm what is getting sent to google.

Well, that's not entirely true the reports are showing about 30 visitors a day (and no page hits, how is that possible?).  The main profile is showing 5,000  10,000 visitors day.
