Step by step instructions on how to set the Google Analytics tracking code in Oxwall

Google Analytics is a service offered by Google that generates in-depth statistics about your website's traffic and traffic sources including site referrals, traffic sources and measure conversions of your campaigns.


The Google Analytics works via a Google Analytics Tracking code which can be obtained via your Google Analytics Dashboard following the instructions in the official knowledgebase article. To start collecting stats via the Google Analytics the tracking code needs to be implemented on every page of your Oxwall website.


Following this tutorial we will show you how to setup the Google Analytics code with Oxwall. To begin, first obtain your Google Analytics tracking code via your Google Analytics Dashboard following the instructions in this article. If you do not have a Google Analytics account yet, you can sign up for free via the Official Google Analytics site.


When you have an active Google Analytics account and you have obtained your tracking code, login into your Oxwall admin dashboard and refer to the Settings icon in the top navigation panel.

The Page Settings section allows you to add custom code to your website head area and right before the closing tag of your page. It is highly recommended to have Google Analytics set just before the closing body tag of your website.


This means that you should paste your Google Analytics tracking code in to the Custom tail code filed.
