Adding Google Analytics to your site

 
The Sitebuilder makes it easy for you to add Google Analytics to your site. All you need is a tracking ID that you add to your Website Settings area. Here’s how to get started:
  1. If you do not have a Google Analytics account, go to Google Marketing Platform and in the list of available products locate Google Analytics:

Continue to sign up and create an account according to Google’s instructions.

  1. If you already have an account, then go to Google Analytics.
  2. You will be taken directly to the admin section of the Google Analytics control panel. If necessary, create a new account. 

Note: If you already have an account with Google Analytics, you can manage multiple sites (“properties”) there. In this case, simply add a new property (instructions). You will be asked to enter the new property name (your website title), choose the site industry, and pick the time zone for reporting purposes.

  1. Once you are done, go to the Tracking ID section of the menu. The tracking code will be generated. Copy this portion of the code:

  1. Paste your Google Analytics tracking code and click Submit.

Note: Once you have added the tracking code you should not see anything on your page. It is an invisible tracking code that sends the information to your Google Analytics account. 

  1. Republish your site by clicking the Publish button. 

When you examine the page source code, you should see the Google Analytics tracking ID injected into the <head> area of your pages:

Please be aware that it may take up to 24 hours for Google Analytics to collect the first batch of data about your site.
