Integrating Google Analytics requires a Tracking ID from Google…and that’s it!
- If you already have a Google Analytics account, login, click Home, and copy your Tracking ID. If you don’t yet have an account, you can register for one here.
- Visit Thesis Admin → Site → Google Analytics, paste your Tracking ID, and click “Save Google Analytics”
The video below walks though the above steps in just over a minute:
Thesis suppresses the Google Analytics code for logged-in users, so you won’t be able to see it in the source code of your pages while you’re still logged into your WordPress Dashboard. This is to ensure that your visitor counts will be accurate, rather than being skewed by your own visits (or those of any other authors on your site).
