Core “Business Start Up” Training

Getting Started

In the process of adding Google Analytics to my new website, I copied/pasted the URL and noticed that the URL isn't secure?

I thought all websites hosted at WA are secure

Jean, you need to make the change yourself. Here is a link to a training. (Note: Although it may not concern you, this does now apply to Sitebix since recent update.)

You need to activate the SSL on each site. Under Websites/Site Manager/Details check there for each of your sites and make sure SSL is turned on.

Hope that helps.

Did you turn it on? Click on websites on the left. Then where you see your website listed, click on View Details. Scroll down until you see SiteSSL and make sure it is turned on.

Why is my website url http: and not https:?

In regards to Privacy Policy and Disclaimer pages, I know that "No Index" and "No Follow" should be checked, but not sure whether "Disable On This Page" should be checked or no

I'm sure at some point in time I will be referring to this info. Thanks

It is always better to unflag on top level as they say...

Yes
Did that before and gve me problems

Now i go to all in one sea > sitemap
And unflag all that needs not to be in sitemap.

Better

I don't understand at this time. However, if I run into issue, I will refer to what you show above. Thanks.

Should "disable on this page" be checked also?

How do you set it up so that search engines only track other people who visit your website and doesn't track every time you yourself (the website creator) visits your site? (I

Jean, I'm just observing on this one.
judebanks answers are spot on. She must have been experiencing exactly what you are going through.
This is why I love WA community so much:
Someone nearby has the answer, and the opportunity for synchronicity is much higher here at WA SynchroniCity!

Yes, agree, always prompt answers with WA community.

Great. So should one add Google Analytics to website BEFORE doing what's needed to exclude IP address?

Yes, to exclude internal traffic via your IP, you need to set up the tracking code used by Google to identify your traffic. Then you can apply the filter to exclude your IP address from those stats.

Okay, I'll install Google Analytics first by following Kyle's training. :-)

Hi Jude, So I've set up Google Analytics and am now working on excluding internal traffic via IP.

The first step is finding out my IP address, so I typed "What is my IP" in Google.

However, I'm perplexed about how long my IP address is compared to the one shown in Jay's video. The one in video is only 8 digits with numbers separated by periods, but the IP address that turned up for me is 31 digits and includes letters and separated by colons.

This makes me question or want to verify whether my IP is correct? Did they change the IP formula recently perhaps to a longer equation?

There are 2 IP stacks. One is IPv6 (the long one) and IPv4 (the short one).

Check it here and use the IPv4 digits if you prefer shorter. Either one is fine to use.

Okay, my IPV4 address is 10 digits, so I'll use that. Thanks.

In your Analytics you can set which ip addresses to not record so you can put down your home internet ip and any ip address of any devices you use.

Usually there is someplace in settings to block your IP address from being tracked.

You can find out your IP address by going to a browser and type in "What's My IP".

Hope this helps,
