Tracking Code Installation

Installation of A1WebStats is exactly the same for each subscription level. It works as follows:

  • Sign up to the 30 day trial within this website.
  • You will have a unique username and password that gives you access to your website visitors statistics. You can change your password at any time.
  • You will be given a piece of code that needs to be inserted into your website so that it’s on every existing page and is also automatically inserted into new pages that may be created. The piece of code is invisible to the website visitor and if you’re familiar with Google Analytics, works in a similar way. It also works fine alongside Google Analytics code. For most websites the installation is a 5 minute job for your web developer.
  • You confirm to us that the code has been installed and we respond to you, confirming that it’s working correctly.
  • You are free to access the website statistics at any time.

If you have any questions about installation then please do contact us and we’ll be happy to advise you without obligation.

Tracking Code Installation on a Typical Website

Most websites will have a footer section allowing you to insert the tracking code.  Add the A1WebStats tracking code just before the </body> tag in the footer and save the file.  All visits to the website will then be tracked and will be available for viewing within the A1Webstats system.

If your website doesn’t have a footer page then the tracking code will need to be entered on each page of your website.  Please make sure that the tracking code is entered just before the </body> tag at the bottom of the page.

Installation on a WordPress Website

To install the A1 tracking code on your WordPress website you can either add it to a Google Analytics plugin if you have one on your WordPress website or the other way is to add it to a web page called footer.php. See below on how to do this:

  • In the WordPress admin area go to the ‘Appearance’ tab and click on, ‘Editor’.
  • Next locate the ‘footer.php’ file (This will be located typically on the right hand side).  Click on the Footer (footer.php) to bring up the code.
  • Add the A1WebStats tracking code just before the </body> tag in this file and then click, ‘Update File’.  A1Webstats will then be able to track every page on that WordPress site.
