Hi zaff

What tracking code do you want to add? Some tracking code can be added by simply dragging and dropping an HTML widget onto your page and pasting your code into the HTML editor.

If you were thinking of Google Webmaster, then you need to do the following:
After you sign up for a Google Webmaster account and type in your URL, here are the steps you should follow:
1) Select the meta tag verification option. Here is an example of what you will see:
<!-- <meta name="verify-v1" content="bHhqyg8xA3R4knMc+W1+W7+U0/Fy2EBT580Jbxdtx8I=" /> -->
2) You only need to copy the number portion of the code (eg. "bHhqyg8xA3R4knMc+W1+W7+U0/Fy2EBT580Jbxdtx8I=" )
3) In SynthaSite, click on the properties sidebar and paste that code in the specially designated "Google Webmaster" field. Do this for every page of your site that you want Google to track.
4) Republish your site and check back with Google Webmaster to make sure that it has been verified.

Please let me know if you had something different in mind.

Hi Lynda,

I just emailed you, but I'll repeat my suggestion here for the benefit of other users.

If the problem is pasting, you could try using the "Edit" menu of your browser. Go Edit-Paste. Or use short cut keys: "Cntrl-V" for paste. If that does not help, please do the following:
Log into your site, click on the "help" menu, click on "report bug" fill in the form and send it to us. We will try to help you get it working from there (of course, you just need to reply to the email that I sent you and we can work from there).

Hi dijith

This thread is 3 years old and we have changed how to add tracking codes to your site.

To add tracking codes, go to Site > Site Settings. Then click on "Site Tracking Code". Please note that this feature is only available to our Yola Silver subscribers, so if you have not upgraded, you will not be able to add your code here. You will first need to upgrade to Yola Silver in order to add your code.

Hope this helps!
Nazlie

Hello Steven

Your best bet may be to use Google Analytics. The ability to add their tracking code to your Yola website is a Yola Silver/Yola Gold feature. Here is the tutorial: Adding Analytics.

For other options please see the "Tracking visitors to your site" section of our SEO tutorials.
