If you're reading this, you've probably already heard about Google Analytics and want to add it to your store!
For those who are not aware, Google Analytics is a free service that can give you inside information on how your customers find and use your site. You can also integrate it into your Adwords account for example.
If you've not yet got an Analytics account, first job is to head over to https://analytics.google.com/ and create one. They'll walk you through the setup asking for information like website name and the URL.
Next, simply click the button that says 'Get Tracking ID' and they'll generate a gtag.js (copy carefully this into notepad as we'll need it).
Jump into your Evolution X admin panel and go to Store Settings > General > Search Engine Optimization
Copy the notepad text into the 'Google Analytics field' and hit Save
👍Pro Tip: You can drag the window to double check the info looks correct!
You've just set up Google Analytics! 💪
If you'd like to test it's working, you'll find a 'send test traffic' button in your Google dashboard. Simply click this and it will verify that all is ok.
