Hi, Afroz! Thanks for your question.
The question you asked and many others concerning Google Analytics was addressed in detail in a recent article at our blog How to Set up Magento Google Analytics? Step-by-step Instruction.
How can we link google tag manager into magento website??
Thank you, Damon!
Thanks you have explain this process nicely, and here’s a much simpler and easy to follow tutorial to add Google Analytics on Magento 2 on magenticians I found it very useful too.
This is supported by the core functionality, same as in M1. So, if you did not modify GoogleAnalytics view, it should work out of the box.
Wow, it’s great! Magento 2 rules! So GA code will be added by Magento 2 itself?
@Andrew, now it’s enough to specify your Account Number. GA code will be added after the opening “body” tag automatically.
after adding Tracking ID, what about:
“This is the Universal Analytics tracking code for this property.
To get all the benefits of Universal Analytics for this property, copy and paste this code into every webpage you want to track.”
Do I need it on every page also, or Tracking ID is enough?
