Google Analytics is a freemium web analytics service that helps you analyse visitor traffic so that you can better reach out to your target audience and meet their needs. It's a platform that connects to every page on your website and helps you to unlock insightful data through various dashboards and reports.
Google Analytics can provide you with the routes people take to reach your site, the content they viewed, and even the devices they used to get there. Find out more about Google Analytics here: https://www.google.com/analytics/analytics/#?modal_active=none
Currently, Arcadier only supports the Universal Analytics property for Google Analytics (i.e. your tracking code should start with UA-, not G-).
To connect your Google Analytics to Arcadier, you’ll first need to have a Google Analytics property already set up. Simply go to the Google Analytics tab under Analytics/SEO in your admin portal,
- Fill in your Google Analytics Tracking ID
- Fill in your Google View ID
- Sign in with your Google account that has the Google Analytics property to complete the connection
If you are still having problems or do not have a Google Analytics property connected yet, the steps below should assist you with connecting smoother!
