Connecting Google Analytics with your page is extremely easy. Make sure that you already have a Google Analytics account. If you don't you can sign up for one here.

In order to connect your Google Analytics account to your Instapage landing page you will need to:

1. If you're in the editor, exit the builder to go to the Experience Manager interface:

3. If you have already connected your Google Analytics account in the main Integrations dashboard, you will see it here and you can connect it to this particular experience:

If you have not connected your Google Analytics account yet, you can go to the main Integrations dashboard to connect it:

After you have connected the account, return to the Experience Manager interface for the page from before in order to complete the integration process. Don't forget to Update the page after connecting.

All the reports in GA will display data regarding all the pages that include the respective Tracking ID. To view specific landing page traffic, you can check the Behavior panel - Landing Pages report and filter the view for a particular page.

Make sure to select the correct GA property and view. Each view can be selected from here:

In order to see specific traffic such as variations coming from the landing pages, you can do the following:

1. Go to Behavior - Site Content - Landing Pages:

A column with Page Variation Name will appear and you can see the analytics data by variation.

Note: This only tracks variation views. If you would like to track more advanced metrics such as custom events with Google Analytics, please see this article: http://bit.ly/2WMZO9l

If you would like to disconnect a GA property ID, you can do so from the Integrations dashboard, as shown below:

When connecting the Google Analytics account, in case you encountered this error message: “We are sorry but custom dimensions limit for this web property has been reached”. it comes from a limitation of the Google Analytics account. It refers to the fact that the client has reached a limit in his Google Analytics account. You will need to double check in the Google Analytics account how many dimensions you have. Google’s documentation has more details on this: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2709829?hl=en

On our end, the message will look like this:

In Google Analytics, here is where you can find the respective index numbers for your dimensions:

You just need to type in the number in Instapage in the modal pictured above. If you type anything else besides the plain number or if the number you type is not found to be corresponding to a dimension in your account, you will encounter an error.
