A reminder, things you also need when installing Google Analytics plugin for EPiServer and using ASP.Net MVC

There are probably some documentation regarding this on EPiServer World but I had some trouble finding the information needed. Installation of the Add-On for Google analytics is really easy but to make everything work we also need to put some code in your views, not only install the add-on

There are two ways of make Google Analytics track your visitors:


  • Use RequiredClientResources (Recommended)
   1:  @Html.RequiredClientResources(RenderingTags.Header)
   3:  @Html.RequiredClientResources(RenderingTags.Footer) 
  • Or use AnalyticsTrackingScript helper if you are not using above already in your _Layout.cshtml
   1:  @Html.AnalyticsTrackingScript(Model.CurrentPage)


And that’s it.

Happy tracking

Remember glcid is case sensitive and Google Analytics can fail, if someone's website is converting urls into lower case including the values of glcid.

Eric, I use:

And only that one (inside head). I guess you can use either areas.

@Html.AnalyticsTrackingScript(Model.CurrentPage) can be used if you do NOT use RequiredClientResources in your layout. But since it is recommended to have that (both for header and footer), it is rarely used.

I recommend using Google Tag Manager for tracking. The plugin (at least the old one) just sets 2 custom vars that are very easy to replicate.

Thanks. I am not that much into analytics but customers do like the plugin and could not find any documentation how to render the actual script. I also noticed that people talk more and more about the Google Tack Manager.
