Add Google Analytics To Your New Site Using Format
Google Analytics is a powerful statistics tool for tracking how your Format site is performing on the web. This free tool allows you to monitor how visitors are finding your site, your top-performing content, and gives you demographics including geographical information about your visitors. All of this can be extremely useful in letting you know how you might want to improve your site, re-label sections based on popular searches leading to your pages, and generally let you know the kind of traffic your site is seeing.
Format makes installing Google Analytics a snap. First, click Analytics in the menu on the top-right corner. Then sign up to get started with Google Analytics.
Sign In and Sign Up for Google Analytics
When you’re signing up you will need to specify the website you want to use with Google Analytics.
If you have your own custom domain (e.g. yourdomain.com) enter that domain. If you have a custom domain and haven't yet connected it to Format you can learn how to here.
Otherwise, you’ll want to enter your Format Address (e.g. yoursite.format.com). You can confirm your Format Address or Connected Domain on the Settings > Site > Domain panel.

Once you've signed up, copy your Google Analytics tracking code (tracking ID) for your particular URL, which will look like UA-12345678-1
