Republication Tracker Tool Google Analytics ID
In order to track your republished post pageviews in Google Analytics, you will need to insert your Google Analytics tracking ID into the field labeled
Republication Tracker Tool Google Analytics ID.
To find your Google Analytics ID, first log into your Google Analytics account. Once logged in, click the
Admin button on the bottom left corner.
Once inside the admin panel, click into
Property Settings for the property you want the tracking ID for.
Inside of the
Property Settings pane is where you will see your tracking ID.
Creative Commons Tracking Code
Once you have your Google Analytics ID set, you'll be able to view a sample tracking code that you will be able to copy and paste in order to manually insert into specific types of articles that you'd like to track. Just remember to swap out
YOUR-POST-ID with the actual ID of the post you're going to insert the pixel into.
To find the ID of your post that you'd like to use, navigate to the edit page for the specific post. Once on the editor page, you can grab your post ID from the
post parameter in the url.
Why isn't my site logo appearing on republished posts?
The Republication Tracker Tool uses
get_site_icon_url to grab your site favicon to display in republished posts. If your favicon is not appearing, please make sure your site has a favicon set in the way described in the WordPress docs.
