Installing a Google Analytics tracking code
To set up those analytics, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Register for a Google Analytics account if you haven't already.
Step 2: Locate your Measurement ID in Google Analytics. These should begin with a “G-”.

When the dropdown opens, click on "Site settings" within the dropdown menu.
Step 4: Once inside the settings tab, click on the Analytics tab.
Next, type (or paste) in your code within the "Google Analytics Tracking ID" area.
Step 5: When you're ready, click "Save changes".
