If you're looking for a way to track the traffic to your website (number of visitors, active visitors on the site, etc.), you can do this by integrating Google Analytics into your website. If you aren't familiar with Google Analytics, it is a very powerful service that is completely free to use. Once you've set up Analytics with your SnapPages site, you will be able to see who is visiting your site (age, gender, location, etc.), how long they are on each page of your site, which links they click, and much, much more. 

To get started, visit the Google Analytics website. If you already have a Google account that you'd like to use, click 'Sign In'. If you do not have a Google account, click 'Sign Up' and follow the steps to create one (totally free to do so). Once you're logged into Google Analytics, you'll be asked to create a new Analytics account for your website (screenshot below). From there, fill out the form and click 'Get Tracking Code' at the bottom of the page when you're done.

After doing this, you'll be taken to a page that lists a unique 'Tracking Code' for your website. To connect your SnapPages website with Google Analytics, you'll need to add the code provided to your website. If you think this sounds complicated, don't worry - it's very easy! All you will need to do is copy the code provided under 'Website Tracking' (screenshot below). 

Once you've copied the tracking code, log into your SnapPages website and click the 'Settings' tab. From there, click 'Code' and paste the copied code into the 'Header Code' section (shown in screenshot below). After adding the code, be sure to click 'Save Settings' in the upper right hand corner of the page.

That's it! Assuming you've added the code just as it was shown in your Google Analytics account, your site should be verified in Analytics within 48 hours (it takes a little while for Google to start compiling the data). If you have any issues getting your site verified, please don't hesitate to let our support team know.

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, Google Analytics is a very powerful service that will allow you to do many different things. For more information on all that you can do with Analytics, I recommend checking out the Google Analytics help center. You can also find additional help in the Google Analytics community forum.
