Information about Google Analytics for Drupal

Google Analytics provides you with lots of information on usage of your website (visits, devices used, countries where users come from). We strongly advise you keep track of analytics to see how you can improve certain pages, which pages are most popular, which are not performing as expected, etc.

How Digital Presence supports Google Analytics

All new Drupal sites contain the tracking code for the main UCL-wide Google Analytics property. All editors can request 'read and analyse' access to the main property.

If you would like to have data sent to your own Google Analytics account,  please send the property ID - this is the one beginning with UA-xxxx to web-support@ucl.ac.uk with the relevant URL.
If you don’t have an account and you would like one, you can set one up at google.com/analytics


How to access Google Analytics 

If you would like to access Google Analytics for your site please follow the steps below:

  1. Create an account with Google Analytics using your UCL email address 
  2. Once you have done that please email the Web Support Team at web-support@ucl.ac.uk and let the team know you would like access to Google Analytics and have created an account 
  3. You should now have access to view Analytics for your website
