How do I install it in my website?

Most websites make installing google analytics very easy. Once you log in, go to “Admin” at the lefthand bottom side of the screen, and then “Tracking” under “Property”.

Create the code and then copy and paste it into the Google Analytics section of your website. If you are using a website platform such as Wix or Squarespace, this will be in the “settings” area. If you are using WordPress, most themes offer a Google Analytics integration, or plugin such as Yoast will also provide a way to sync the code. You can also contact your web host for further support.
