Google Analytics is a powerful tool that can be used to track website visitors. Chime has already built in the Google Analytics code to the site and makes it easy for you to begin tracking site activity by simply inserting the Global Site Tag or Tracking ID.
Google Analytics Setup
The first step is to make sure you have a property created on your Google Analytics account. More information on this topic can be found in this related article written by Google: Set up a property.
Link Google Analytics to Chime Site
First, log in to the CMS Tool > Settings > Integrations > Google Analytics:
There are two different methods of connecting to Chime--choose the one that works best for you. You can use either (1) the Global Site Tag or (2) the Tracking ID. Copy either one from the Google Analytics settings (see this help documentation from Google to learn more: Set up the Analytics tag).
Choose which option you will use on Chime:
And then paste in the corresponding data from Google Analytics.
The Global Site Tag is a piece of code that needs to be added to <HEAD> of every web page that you want to track. The tracking code configured in the CMS Tool will be placed in the <HEAD> of every page automatically.
The Tracking ID should look something like this: UA-000000-2:
Be sure to click on the blue "Save" button to finalize the installation. After the Global Site Tag or Tracking ID has been added, Google Analytics will begin to track things.
Testing the Connection
If you want to check whether the installation was successful, you can use this Chrome plugin: Tag Assistant (by Google).
