Add a Google Analytics tracking code to your event website and event mobile appAs an event organizer, sometimes you want to keep tabs on how many visitors are coming to your event website. You also may want to know where visitors are coming from (if they clicked on a link in your event Facebook page, or your Twitter feed, etc.). You may also want to know what pages they are looking at on your event site and how long they are staying. Google Analytics is a great solution to track visit statistics like these, and it’s free to use! When you use Grenadine Event Planner to create your event website, you can customize your event site’s domain (as explained in this post) and you can also use your own Google Analytics tracking code to collect stats on attendee visits, registrations, etc. Here are steps to get this done:
Step 1: Set up your event website to use your own domainThe first step is to set up your automatically-generated event website in Grenadine to use your own custom internet domain or subdomain. This makes it so that the address that your attendees see your domain in their browser address bar, and helps your branding and also attributes all keywords to your own domain within search results. See instructions on setting up your domain for your event website here: Publishing your event website under a custom domain.
Step 2: Get a Google Analytics tracking codeIf you don’t have your own Google Analytics tracking code to use with your custom domain, now is the time to get one. Here’s a good tutorial from Google on how to do this: Set up Analytics tracking Once you’ve completed your Analytics setup, you should have a tracking code that looks something like this:
<!– Global Site Tag (gtag.js) – Google Analytics –>
<script async src=”https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=<strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">UA-47363416-3</span></strong>“></script>
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || ;
gtag(‘js’, new Date());
gtag(‘config’, ‘<strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">UA-47363416-3</span></strong>‘);
