How does Google Analytics from Manage Domains work?


#1

I recently updated one of my domains and noticed that there is an option to add Google Analytics from the Manage Domains page in DH by just adding the publisher id.

How does that work?
Where will GA be placed in my site?
What about the site settings that can be changed in GA that trigger different tracking codes to be created, will those be inherited by my site?

When this feature is enabled, the Google PageSpeed extension automatically analyzes your HTML and throws in a JavaScript snippet to call Google Analytics (along with optimizing it).

I’m not 100% sure offhand where it’ll put the script, but it should be inserted in an appropriate location on all HTML pages.

No. The automatic Google Analytics insertion is just for basic statistics tracking — if you need to use its more advanced features like conversion tracking, you’ll still need to set those up yourself.
