The best way to track visitors to your T4 site is through Google Analytics This allows you to track where (country, city, website) visitors came from as well as what kind of device they were using, how long they stayed on your site and which are your most popular pages.
Note that it’s only possible to do this once your site has been made live (moved from a dev-research/something address to just research.ncl.ac.uk/something)
Firstly, get an account: http://www.google.com/analytics/
…and enter the website Name and URL that you wish to track:
This will give you a Tracking ID and some code:
Copy this code (CTRL+C), as we’ll need it later.
This content type needs a name (“Google Analytics” is as good a name as any) and also gives you a box to paste in the code from above (CTRL+V).
Click “Update and Approve” and then next time your site publishes, the Google tracking code will appear in the footer of every page and Google Analytics can start tracking your site.
This may take a few hours, but once it’s working you’ll be able to return to Google Analytics and see the real time tracking working on your site:
