Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a service that allows you to see not only how many people visit your website, but also how they found you, what they looked at and what part of the world they live in. Using your Google Analytics Page you can link your OPP Website to your Google Analytics Account.

  • Do not be alarmed if your Google Analytics account has a yellow yield sign next to your site address at first. It does not mean your account is improperly connected. Check back in a few days. It should have a green check mark there after a few days of gathering data.
  • As the Google Analytics set-up explains, Analytics takes a while to begin gathering data about your site. You'll generally see info within 24 hours.

Linking Your Website to Your Google Analytics Account

  • Once you have an account with Google Analytics, sign in and click 'New Account'. You may need to go to the Admin Tab to see this option.

  • Select Website, input your URL, and scroll down the page to indicate your other preferences. When you have completed your selections, click 'Get Tracking ID'.

  • Once the account is setup, you should be taken to a page such as below. Go to 'Tracking ID' and copy the code that is generated by Google Analytics. Then, go to your OPP Control Panel.

  • Once logged into your OPP Control Panel, click on 'Google Analytics', in the Search / Traffic / Sharing area. Paste the code in its entirety in the space provided, and click 'Update'.

  • If the link to Google Analytics was successful, when you click on 'Check OPP Usage / Google Analytics', your Control Panel will state 'You have linked your website to your Google Analytics account' (see image below in Connected to Analytics). Do not be alarmed if your Google Analytics account has a yellow yield sign next to your site address at first. It does not mean your account is improperly connected. Check back in a few days.
  • Once you are connected, your Analytics page will look like this:

Connected to Analytics

If your OPP website is currently linked to your Analytics account, this area will state 'Your website is linked to Google Analytics account UA-Whatever your personalized code is'

Not connected to Analytics

If your OPP website is not yet linked to your Analytics account, you will see an empty text box next to the words 'Analytics Code'. Follow the instructions here and paste the code in this empty text box.
