Using Google Analytics

Before You Begin

To set up tracking web stats with Google Analytics, you must have access to the source code for your website. If you do not have access, we recommend you contact your unit’s web developer or administrator.

Getting Started

To begin, go to Google's Google Analytics web page. The first time you enter Google Analytics, you will need to create an account by clicking the button at the top right. Instructions for setting up your website(s) and customizing the kind of data you’ll collect are provided.

Please contact the UMN Web Stats support team with any questions or concerns.
