Integrating Google Analytics Universal

Last Updated: Oct 26, 2016 02:09PM EDT

Step 1: Integrate Google Analytics Universal with your website and enable cross domain tracking

Add the following block of code to every page of your website.  It should be placed right before the </head> tag.  Please make sure to replace UA-XXXXX-X with your web property ID.

<script>
  (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
  (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
  m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
  })(window,document,'script','https://www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

  ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXX-X', 'auto', {'allowLinker': true});
  ga('require', 'linker');
  ga('linker:autoLink', ['thinkreservations.com'], false, true);
  ga('send', 'pageview');
</script>

Step 2: Enable E-commerce tracking inside Google Analytics

  1. Log into Google Analytics.
  2. Navigate to the desired view (typically you will only have one view to select from).
  3. Click the "Admin" button in the top navigation.
  4. In the "View" column, select "Ecommerce Settings"
  5. Toggle the "Enable Ecommerce" option to ON.

Step 3: Add proper domains to the Referral Exclusion List

It is important to add both your website domain and the secure.thinkreservations.com domain to the Referral Exclusion List.

To access the Referral Exclusion List:
  1. Log into Google Analytics.
  2. Navigate to the desired view (typically you will only have one view to select from).
  3. Click the "Admin" button in the top navigation.
  4. In the "Property" column, select "Tracking Info" and then "Referral Exclusion List".
Once you are on the Referral Exclusion List, verify that the following domains are present:
  • secure.thinkreservations.com
  • The domain of your website (Example: yourdomain.com - notice there is NO www.)
If you need to add a domain name to the list, you may do so by clicking the "Add Referral Exclusion" button.
