Google Analytics

Setup

  1. Create a Google account for your department, school, college, or other functional group.

  2. Log in to Google Analytics
  3. Click the Admin tab in the top right
  4. Click the + New Account button
  5. Fill out the form using the final URL that your site will use once launched. If you're using a temporary address, hold off on this step until you've launched the site and then use the final URL.
  6. Click 'Tracking ID'
  7. Click 'I accept'
  8. Copy the Tacking ID. It starts with "UA-"
  9. Log in to your site
  10. Go to Settings > Google Analytics
