How to Add your Google Analytics to your Website

If you have already have set up a Google Analytics account for your domain then please skip down to step 1 under the Google Analytics Steps. If you don't have a Google Analytics account set-up yet you will need to go set one up. You can view the article "Get Started with Analytics" to help you get your account set up. 

Once you have your Google Analytics account setup please follow the steps below to add Google Analytics to your website.  

Google Analytics steps:
You will need to log into your Google Analytics account to get the tracking code for the specific property you are working with. 

  1. Log into your Google Analytics account. 
  2. Next select "Admin" from the left navigation bar. 
  3. Under the Column labeled "Property" click "Tracking Info"
  4. You will then need to select "Tracking Code".

What you are wanting to copy is under the title of "Global Site Tag (gtag.js)".  This is the tracking code needed to add Google Analytics to your website inside your REI BlackBook account. 

Here is an example of that code:

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

gtag('config', 'UA-XXXXXX-NN');
</script>
