How Can We Help?

Configuring Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a free (registration required) website traffic and marketing effectiveness service. A Google Analytics account must be created before configuring Analytics in a Mukurtu Site. For account creation, and other Google Analytics support and services, see the Google Analytics support resources. Note that it usually takes 24-48 hours for site hits to start registering with Google Analytics after configuring the UA code.

PLEASE NOTE (September 2021): Google Analytics now uses a different method to generate UA codes. Please see Google Analytics September 2021 Update for more information.
