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.

Troubleshooting

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.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
