9 All this is for one month There’s lots of data, but no way to summarize it easily, combine date ranges, or create custom graphs and reports Can’t export to different formats It’s free (with my hosting fees)

10 What is Google Analytics? A Traffic Monitoring and Analysis Tool Tracks your page views – Data usage – traffic – traffic sources – User behavior Provides data in a single interface with data export options It’s free!

11

12 How does GA work? You put a small snippet of code inside your pages. It “sends visitor activity to your Google Analytics account.”

13 How does GA work? You do not need to know JavaScript to use GA. Your server does not need anything special to run the GA script.

14 How does GA work? But you’ll need a Google account to start

15 Setting up the account google.com/analytics

16 Use your own account, or make a new account for library use

17 Of course there are other Google benefits.

18 Setting up the account google.com/analytics

20 Google already has the steps laid out for you. It looks easy in just three steps.

21 Google will help you by offering tips when you’re new or new changes have been made to GA.

22

23 GA’s in flux right now. Start with the newer one, since it’ll be permanent soon.

24 You can also configure the mobile app if you use those, but it’s not required.

26

27 Copypasta.

28 But these other options are vague-- for a reason.

29 The JavaScript Snippet (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsO bject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l= 1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.s rc=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//www.google- analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA ', 'oclc.org'); ga('send', 'pageview');

30 The JavaScript Snippet (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsO bject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){ (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l= 1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o), m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.s rc=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m) })(window,document,'script','//www.google- analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); ga('create', 'UA ', 'oclc.org'); ga('send', 'pageview'); You don’t really need to understand what this means. Just copy ‘n’ paste.

31 How to insert the Snippet FTP / HTML CMS (general) – Drupal – OmniUpdate – LOUISiana Digital Library (CONTENTdm)

32 FTP / HTML (etc) Plain ‘ol webpage The simplest way– just stick the script in there But not the easiest way – You need to put the script into every single page

33

34

35

36

37 CMS (etc.) “Content Management System” or “Learning Management System”, etc. – Basically, those websites that make pages for you We’ll look at – Drupal – CONTENTdm – OnmiUpdate

38 Drupal insertion

41

42 Note: Don’t write anything in the title.

43 It doesn’t matter where the script goes, but ‘footer’ works. Make sure it’s on all pages + themes.

44 And now it’s in there!

45 Or… you can use a module. Whichever you want.

46 Bonus: WordPress?

47

48 Ask LOUIS about it.

50 ULM’s GA script insertion is now 100% automatic.
