Google Analytics lets you track visits on your website and get some insights on your audience for free.
Adding your Google Analytics tracking code
Integrating your analytics account is as simple as adding your unique tracking ID within the settings of your plugin page.
Populating website data
Once installed, application data will immediately send and populate data within your Google Analytics accounts.
To integrate Google Analytics, simply source the account tracking code from your Analytics account.
You can find this under the settings tab > properties > tracking code.
For universal accounts, simply copy the tracking code beginning with ‘UA’.
Past this tracking code into the tracking ID field of the plugin settings.
Note: If you’re using the universal version of Google Analytics, select the V1 plugin version from the dropdown menu.
If you’re using a Google Analytics 4 account, copy across your properties measurement ID field from the same settings page.
You’ll also need to update the version type dropdown to the V2 gtag.js choice.
How do I make Google Analytics GDPR compliant?

How can I track custom events?
It’s still possible to create custom events as normal within your Google Analytics account. These can include events like minimum session times, lead events, and success pages. Any events you create will propagate through to your Bubble application.
