|SharpSpring's website tracking is made possible through tracking code.
This allows you to connect with the SharpSpring platform and take advantage of all the tools SharpSpring has to offer.
This article will detail how to utilize tracking codes in SharpSpring.
Understanding Tracking Codes
|Tracking codes are generated automatically. That said, tracking codes are different for each website. This means that tracking codes must be installed on each page you want to track. However, once you have added SharpSpring tracking codes to a website, microsite, blog or landing page, you will start generating leads in seconds. SharpSpring allows you to track as many sites as you would like and monitor them in one place.||
Important: Tracking codes should be placed directly on pages in your website. Google Tag Manager does not currently work with SharpSpring tracking code.
To begin tracking your website in SharpSpring, you will first need to add it to SharpSpring and generate a tracking code.
Important: If a site with the same domain name already exists in your account, either activated or deactivated, the generated website will not save. You cannot have two sites with the same domain name.
Copying Tracking Codes
Once you have added a website to SharpSpring, the website will be assigned a specific tracking code. This tracking code will need to be copied for use on your website. To copy a tracking code in SharpSpring, do the following:
Pasting Tracking Codes
Once you have added a site and copied that site's tracking code, you will need to paste the tracking code on your website.
While each website is different, the general process is largely the same. To paste tracking code on a website, do the following:
Note: SharpSpring offers Professional Services to assist with custom coding.
Once you have properly pasted your code and waited 24 hours, you should see site traffic for this site in your instance under the Site Traffic tab. The orange Pending tag will turn green and say Active once tracking is live.
Tracking Wordpress Websites
Wordpress is a popular content management system (CMS) that you can host web content on. You can track Wordpress websites. To place tracking code on a Wordpress site, do the following:

The tracking code will be located under the Domain and Tracking ID information.
