What’s Google Pixel Retargeting?
Google Analytics is a free analytics service that helps you measure your company’s advertising ROI as well as track video and social networking sites and applications. Google Pixel Retargeting is really a Google Analytics tracking code snippet placed on your website that enables you to track the visitors to your site and generate reports that help you with your marketing.
How to find your tracking ID
- Sign in to your Google Analytics account.
- Click Admin on the left-hand corner of your screen (the orange gear icon).
- Ensure you select the corresponding account from the menu in the Account column.
- Ensure you select the corresponding property from the menu in the Property column.
- Under Property, click Tracking Info > Tracking Code. Your tracking ID displays at the top of the page. The tracking ID is a string like UA-000000-2. You must include it in your tracking code to tell Analytics which account and property to send data to.
How to implement your tracking code
1. Paste the following snippet right after the <head> tag on each page of your site. Replace GA_TRACKING_ID with your own Google Analytics tracking ID.
2. Verify that the tracking code is working by visiting your website and check to see that your visit is registering in the Real-Time reports.
Now that you know how to place a Google Analytics tracking code on your website, learn how to place a Facebook Pixel on your site as well.
