Measure site traffic with Google Analytics

Google Analytics is one of the most powerful web analytics applications available on the web. Being an entirely free program, makes it even more appealing.

How to add Google Analytics to your Pixpa website:

  • Go to settings page, you would see the option to add Google Analytics tracking ID on right side.
  • Add your Google Analytics code/Tracking ID which appears like: UA-01234-01 and hit Save.

 

If you are not aware how to find your Google Analytics code/Tracking ID, checkout this Google’s Documentation.

Note: Please make sure that you are just adding your Google Analytics UA Tracking ID and not the complete script.


Exclude your internal activity from analytics

To prevent internal traffic or visits from affecting your data, you can use a filter to filter out traffic by IP address.

You can find the public IP address you are currently using by searching “what is my ip address” on google.com.
