In order to add Google Analytics to your XSite, you must first sign up for a free Google Analytics account.  If you do not already have an Analytics account, go to https://analytics.google.com/ and create a free account.  If you're signing up with Google Analytics for the first time, 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've already set up your Analytics account, follow the instructions below.

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 upper left.  Then, select your Account and Property from the drop‑down menus.

  4. In the screen that appears, highlight the code in the Website tracking section, right‑click the selected code, and click Copy.
