Adding Google Analytics to BaseKit

As of June 19, 2013, BaseKit is not available on new Shared accounts; however, Weebly Web Builder is offered as a replacement.

Google Analytics is a free service offered by Google that generates detailed statistics about the visitors to your website. GA can track visitors from all referrers, including search engines, display advertising, e-mail marketing and digital collateral such as links within PDF documents.

Google Analytics' approach is to show high-level, dashboard-type data for the casual user, and more in-depth data further into the report set. Through the use of analysis, poor performing pages can be identified using techniques such as funnel visualization, where visitors came from (also known as referrers), how long they stayed and their geographical position. It also provides more advanced features, including custom visitor segmentation.

With BaseKit, you are able to easily integrate Google Analytics with your BaseKit website in a few short clicks.

Note: To get started with Google Analytics, you must first sign up for a Google Analytics account. You can sign up at http://www.google.com/analytics/

There are two ways that you can integrate Google Analytics to your website.
