Google Analytics is one of the most important tools for marketers who want to increase their website traffic and conversion rates. If you’re not using Google Analytics, then you are missing out on a lot of valuable information that can help your business make more money! There are many features in Google Analytics that allow you to see which content is popular with visitors, how often they visit your site, when they leave (bounce rate), as well as other really useful data. In this article, we will answer some frequently asked questions about tracking codes and event hits so that you know what is happening when someone visits your website!
The HTML for adding the tracking code is as follows:
As soon as someone clicks that button or submits their email address in that form field, they will send an event hit to Google Analytics! For example, if we wanted people who clicked “Subscribe” on our blog homepage sidebar widget – then we would insert this line of code into the sidebar widget area so it looks something like this: In order for these hits to work, you’ll need to set up a goal in Google Analytics.

The Pageview Tracking Code Sending Hits to Google Analytics: The tracking code sends a pageview hit when someone visits one of your pages. When you want to track a page, open up that page’s HTML and add this line of code: As soon as someone views any part of that page (even just for three seconds!), the tracking system will send it over in what we call a “page view.”
How Often Does It Send Events or Pageviews?
This all depends on how often you’re publishing new content! If you have posts coming out every day, then chances are there will be more events and/or page views than if your site only has rare updates. Remember when I mentioned that the tracking system can only send one event and/or page view per second? This is a limitation of Google Analytics. As soon as your site publishes an update, the next time it’s viewed after this limit has been reached, we’ll have to wait until another second passes before sending over any new information!
What Kinds of Hits Does Google Analytics Send? There are three types: event hits (like the ones you might get when someone subscribes or unsubscribe), page views (which happen every time somebody visits a page on your website), and goal conversions. Goal conversion events tell us how many people converted from visitors into customers for certain goals. For example, if someone clicks “add to cart” on your website, this will be counted as a goal conversion.
These events can also be tracked by Google Analytics. This is because when the tracking code sends an event hit to google analytics it’s sending data about what happened directly into the google analytic interface and then each pageview gets sent automatically so that we know if you’re looking at any given page of our site. However, sometimes these hits might not register in our account or show up for some time! This means that even though your webpage was viewed, there may have been a problem somewhere along the way which prevented us from seeing that information yet – but doesn’t worry, the data is still there and it’s just that we need to wait for everything to sync.
