Google adwords and analytics

Postby shahaf_t » Tue Aug 29, 2017 12:21 pm

Hey there, I am using Joomla 2.5 and I am wondering if using the Google codes (Both Adwords and Analytics) is the same as a regular website that was developed with HTML (just copy the code that Google gives you to the HTML file) or is it different?

If its different can you guys tell me how to do it?

Yes, but you'd better check in your Google Analytics account the current code snippet.
They make changes over time, so you'd better use the latest version.

In Joomla's default template you can add the Google Analytics code to the <head> area in
/templates/[template-name]/index.php

hey thanks for that, but the weird thing is as soon as I am pressing the "Extentions" like in the video, I am suppose to get the option to find OA (open analytics) and I don't have it. If I have to guess, I am thinking about a different version of Joomla.

Do you know how can I just use the code instead of all the tricks? :)
