Configuring Google Analytics on the Ares Web Pages

Print Friendly and PDF Follow

If using Google Analytics to track web traffic across your institution's web pages, your Google Analytics site tag can be added to your Ares web pages to facilitate data collection following the steps below:

  1. Locate your Google Analytics global site tag within the Google Analytics interface (for more information on accessing your site tag, see the Google documentation)

    Your Analytics global site tag will begin with:
    <!-- Global Site Tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
    and end with:
    </script>
  2. Copy and paste your entire Analytics site tag into the code for the include_head.html file in your Ares web directory then save the file
  3. Optionally paste your Analytics site tag within the <head> element on the GLogon.html file if you would also like to track data on this web page
  4. Google Analytics tracking is now enabled for your Ares web pages. Note that it may take up to 30 minutes for data collection to begin after your changes are saved.
Note: If you are using multiple web directories, for example, one for Ares authentication and one for remote authentication, then this change should be made to the include_head.html and GLogon.html files in each directory. Similarly, if using the LMS web pages along with the default web pages, please apply the changes to the files noted above in both sets of web pages.
