Google Analytics - Connecting GA For Your Blog Connection

Before connecting your Google Analytics account to the Marketplace, you should check to ensure the Default URL and Website URL within your Google Analytics account match the URL you entered into the Marketplace. *This is a very important step as the Marketplace may not display the correct statistics to Marketers if these URLs differ!

To verify your "Default URL": 

1. Log-in to your Google Analytics account.

2. Click on Admin.

3. Then navigate to the Property column and click on Property Settings.

4. Ensure that the Default URL matches the URL you connected to the Marketplace. (This would have changed if you purchased a domain and originally had a domain along the lines of "yourdomainname.blogspot.com" or another variation of this.)

5. If your Default URL does not match the URL you entered in to the Marketplace we recommend opening your blog in a new tab, copying your URL directly from the browser, pasting your URL into the Default URL box, and then scrolling down to the bottom of the page to save these changes and update your Default URL.

To verify your "Website's URL" in View Settings: 

1. Click on Admin.

2. Under View click on View Settings.

3. Ensure that the Website's URL matches the URL you connected to the Marketplace.

If your Website's URL does not match the URL you entered into the Marketplace we recommend opening your blog in a new tab, copying your URL directly from the browser, pasting your URL into the Website's URL box, and then scrolling down to the bottom of the page to save these changes and update your Website's URL.

4. Once you have ensure your Website's URL matches the URL you entered into the Marketplace, you are ready to connect them to the Marketplace.

1. Log in to your account.

2. Click on your name at the top of your account and the on Connections.
