Step 5: Select Your Property to Setup

Now you can select property such as App or Website(after click create)

I select the web because still, I have a website. This is your first web page or app. Then, you can add multiple websites or apps from this page. Now you created the master page of google analytics. Then you can add a web address without putting "https://" only domain name.

Then, how to identify visitors coming from. website name or app name should mention under the stream name.

No need to go wheel icon to check, all selected as default. Then, click Create Steam

Then you can see Measurement Id: G-NE267K4Z50

(how to add Tracking code all in one SEO or Yoast plugin from the next tutorial)

This is the tracking id for your website. Then, you can see visitors by adding this code to your SEO plugin or you can add Global Site Tag (gtag.js) to your site

I use this Global Site Tag (gtag.js) to get visitors to record to the google analytics tool

<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics --><script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=G-NE267K4Z50"></script><script>  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}  gtag('js', new Date());  gtag('config', 'G-NE267K4Z50');</script>

This tutorial was easy to follow. I will get back to you. I keep getting a message to connect to monster insights. I have an analytics account already set up but google can't see to find my g mail account. I don't understand this. Code was supposedly pasted at the head of my website already by site support.

I am getting message to connect Exact Metrics. Which of these should be connected and if so I get an error for this to.

Thank you,
Diane

Hey Sam,

Thanks for offering this training, as it is badly neeeded.

The only problem with placing tracking code in the header.php of a website's WordPress theme is that the next time the theme is updated, the tracking code will be overwritten and disappear from the website.

The users need to use an SEO plugin or... at the very least, the headers and footers plugin like that which is shown here: Feel free to update your training to include this information, as I'm sure others will be glad for the additional info.

Hope this helps you.

Hi - your suggested method of using the Theme Editor is not recommended. Should you ever change your theme, then Analytics will disconnect. You would have to reconnect it and will lose all the previous data related to your website.
