Configure Google Analytics in ShopSite
Last time, I covered why ShopSite made the switch to use Google Analytics for Traffic Reports. This time, I’ll cover setting up Google Analytics within ShopSite. First, go to Merchandising Tools > Google Services > Google Analytics, where you’ll see the following:
If you don’t have a Google Analytics account, click the “Wizard” button to start the configuration wizard and ShopSite will walk you through the steps. Alternatively, you can watch this video tutorial.
Once you have your Google Analytics account, you can find your tracking code on your Website Profile page. The account tracking code looks something like UA-123456-1. Returning to ShopSite’s Google Analytics page, select the radio button to enable Google Analytics, select “Asynchronous Google Tracking,” paste your account tracking code in the “Google Analytics Tracking Code” field, and then save the configuration. Publish your store to add the code to all of your ShopSite generated pages, including the shopping cart pages, and that’s it!
Google Analytics integration is available in Pro and Manager service levels of ShopSite. Starter merchants will need to get the code directly from Google and manually place it in their store pages and in the header or footer of their Shopping Cart pages.
