• Overview

    Google Analytics is a powerful tool that can be used to analyze the traffic that comes to your website. Google Analytics provides you with the ability to track:

    •     the number of people that have visited your site
    •     the geographical location from where your site's traffic is coming from
    •     the length of time that your visitors stay on each page
    •     the keywords that are used to find your site
    •     and much more!

    Google Analytics for your Wix Mobile site works exactly the same way! Simply follow the instructions below and sign into your Google Analytics account for statistics on your mobile site!

    To use Google Analytics, you will need to own a domain (like www.mydomain.com). Accordingly, Google Analytics is only available to users who have upgraded their Wix site to a package that includes using your own domain. For upgrading instructions, click here. For more information about our packages, click here.

    Please note that blocking non-essential cookies in the Statistics section of Settings blocks Google Analytics.
