Google Analytics 4 is the latest version of Google's analytics platform, offering advanced insights into website traffic and user behavior. Adding Google Analytics 4 to your Wix website is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few steps. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of adding Google Analytics 4 to your Wix website.



Step 1: Create a Google Analytics 4 property


To start using Google Analytics 4, you need to create a new property in your Google Analytics account. If you don't have a Google Analytics account, you can create one for free. Once you're logged in to your Google Analytics account, click on the "Admin" button at the bottom left of the screen. Then, click on the "Create Property" button and select "Google Analytics 4" from the dropdown menu.


Next, you'll be asked to provide some basic information about your property, such as the property name, the URL of your website, and the industry category that best describes your website. You'll also need to choose the reporting time zone and currency. Once you've filled in all the required information, click on the "Create" button to create your new property.


Step 2: Get your Google Analytics 4 tracking code


After you've created your Google Analytics 4 property, you'll need to get the tracking code. To do this, click on the "Data Streams" tab in your property settings and then click on the "Web" button to create a new data stream for your website.


On the next page, you'll need to provide some information about your website, such as the website URL, the stream name, and the industry category. You can also enable advanced tracking options if you want to track specific events or user interactions on your website.


Once you've filled in all the required information, click on the "Create Stream" button to create your new data stream. You'll then be taken to a page where you can get your tracking code.


Step 3: Add the tracking code to your Wix website


Now that you have your Google Analytics 4 tracking code, you need to add it to your Wix website. To do this, log in to your Wix account and go to your website's dashboard.


From the dashboard, click on the "Settings" button and then click on the "Tracking & Analytics" option. On the next page, click on the "New Tool" button and then select "Google Analytics" from the list of available tools.


In the "Google Analytics" settings, paste the tracking code you obtained in Step 2 into the "Tracking ID" field. You can also choose whether to enable anonymized IP tracking and whether to track logged-in users.


Once you've filled in all the required information, click on the "Save" button to add Google Analytics 4 to your Wix website.


Step 4: Verify your tracking code


After you've added your tracking code to your Wix website, it's important to verify that it's working correctly. To do this, go back to your Google Analytics account and click on the "Realtime" tab in your property view.


If your tracking code is working correctly, you should see some data appearing in the "Realtime Overview" report, such as the number of active users on your website and the pages they are viewing.


If you don't see any data in the "Realtime Overview" report, check that you've correctly pasted the tracking code into your Wix website and that it's on all pages of your website.


Step 5: Start tracking your website data


Congratulations, you've successfully added Google Analytics 4 to your Wix website! Now you can start tracking your website data and gaining insights into your website traffic and user behavior. Google Analytics 4 offers a range of features and reports to help you understand how users are interacting with your website, including audience insights, acquisition reports, behavior reports, and conversion reports.


To access these reports, go to your Google Analytics account and click on the "Reporting" tab in your property view. From here, you can navigate through the different reports to gain insights into your website traffic and user behavior.


Some of the key reports you might want to explore include:

In addition to the standard reports, Google Analytics 4 also offers advanced tracking options, such as event tracking and custom dimensions. These features allow you to track specific user interactions on your website, such as button clicks, video views, and form submissions.


To set up event tracking or custom dimensions in Google Analytics 4, you'll need to add additional code to your website. This code can be added either directly to your website's HTML or through a tag manager like Google Tag Manager.
