The Google Analytics Tracking ID
After accepting Google’s terms I got the page shown in Figure 1. The blue box is a warning for people using 3rd party hosting services, and will not be discussed until the reference section at the end of the course. The most important elements on this page are the Tracking ID, here UA-117260220-1, and the snippet of code shown in Figure 2. that has to be copied into the web pages being tracked.

Figure 2. The ID and tracking code to be added to our web pages
You will see how the tracking code can be inserted into the html code of each page of a website in the next step.
