1. Get the Google Analytics tracking code snippet
You need to first get the tracking code snippet from Google Analytics that will do the tracking for you. To get that code please use their documentation:
Get the Google Analytics Tracking Code.
2. Install Google Analytics tracking code onto KickoffLabs pages
Once you have the code you want to install it on every page in your campaign. Thankfully we’ve made that easy with campaign default settings.
a. From the dashboard select the common settings tab and choose “add codes”
b. Paste the code from Google Into the “Header Scripts” area.
c. Click “Save Tracking Codes”
Your pages will be republished automatically with the code change you just made. All future pages you created will automatically have this code added to them once they are published.
Common Questions & Issues
What if not all the pages in my campaign are using the same domain?
Ideally ALL the pages you want to track are published to the SAME domain name.
You’ll also need to go through Step 2 if you are tracking pages across multiple or separate domains. Here are some examples:
- If you’re using “domain A” for a signup page (for example published to signup.example.com) & “domain B” for the status page (for example published to thanks.example.com or thank-you.kickoffpages.com)
- If you are using KickoffLabs Download HTML to embed the page onto a third-party site (known as an iframe).
- If you have a KickoffLabs contest box or AnyForm installed onto a third-party site (for example published to example.com) and redirecting to a dedicated status page on a separate domain (for example published to thank-you.kickoffpages.com).
The BEST practice is to add your custom domain (or subdomain) to KickoffLabs, and publish ALL your pages under a campaign to the same domain using paths. In this case, you don’t need to worry about this.
How do I setup cross domain tracking
Again, this step is only necessary if you are using multiple separate domain names as described above.
This additional step makes it possible for Google Analytics to see sessions on two different sites (such as an ecommerce site and a separate landing page) as a single session. This is sometimes called site linking.
Please reference this guide provided by Google with detailed instructions on setting up cross domain tracking.
