Google Analytics is the most widely used web analytics service on the internet. Implementing Google Analytics on your website allows you to track how visitors use your site, what content is attractive, where visitors exit, and more. Analyzing these metrics in Commerce Intelligence, alongside other pieces of data, improves your site’s overall health and usability.

  6. Changes are saved automatically, so click Back to Connections when you are done.

Connecting multiple Google Analytics profiles

To identify a particular website’s Google Analytics Profile ID:

  1. Log into Google Analytics
