In order to add Google Analytics to your XSite, you must first sign up for a free Analytics account.

  • If you don't have an Analytics account yet, go to https://analytics.google.com to create one for free.  On the account creation page, fill out your account details, and click Get Tracking ID at the bottom of the page.  Then, jump to Step 4 of this document.
  • If you already have an account, follow the instructions below starting with Step 1.
Google Analytics is a third‑party tool and is beyond the control of a la mode.  As such, our technicians will not be able to provide support for this process.  If you need additional assistance in setting up your Analytics account, contact Google support.

  1. Log into your Google Analytics account.
  2. Click Admin in the lower left.  Then, select your Account (A) and Property (B) from the drop‑down menus.
