How do I set up Google analytics for my website?

Solo supports connecting a Google Analytics account to track visitors to your website. If you’re not familiar with Google Analytics, it allows you to view how many visitors and more come to your site.

To connect Google Analytics to your Solo site, you will first need to create a new Google Analytics property.

  1. Go to
  2. Click Create, select Account
  3. Enter a name for your Google Analytics property such as the name of your website
  4. Click Next and you’re now done

See here for more specific instructions for creating your Google Analytics property.

Now that you have your Google Analytics property set up, we need to locate the Google Analytics Measurement ID so we can paste that into Solo Settings for your website.

  1. In Admin, under Data collection and modification, click Data Streams
  2. Select the Web tab
  3. Click the web data stream
  4. See the Measurement ID at the top-right

You’re going to want to write down this measurement ID or select and copy the value.

For more specific instructions for locating your Measurement ID in Google Analytics, see here.

The final step is to now paste your Measurement ID into your Solo website. From Solo’s Designer View for your website, click Settings. On the right-hand side, you will see an option to set up Google Analytics. Click ‘Set Up’, and paste your Measurement ID. Click Save, then Publish and you are now done.

It can take 5-10 minutes before data starts appearing on Google Analytics. You will want to refresh your published Solo website to make sure there is traffic and data for Google to see.
