Google Analytics Video & Audio Tracking

Cincopa allows users to track their videos, galleries, images, audio analytics data by allowing them to integrate with their Google Analytics account.

Getting Started

To get started, users need to have media in their Cincopa account and also an active Google Analytics account. You can create an account from this URL: https://analytics.google.com.

It is important for you to add the Google Analytics Tracking Code to your website before you enable Google Analytics with Cincopa and track the Cincopa media activities.

Why Google Analytics Integration?

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. When Integrated with Cincopa media items, users get Google Analytical data for their media like a number of views, number of times audio or video has been played, etc.

Follow these steps to integrate Google Analytics with your Cincopa Gallery:

1. Log in to your Cincopa Account>>Select Galleries>>Click on Customize Template icon under a gallery you have created. If you have no Gallery, then create one by clicking on New Gallery.

2. Now click on Misc

3. Under Misc>>Search for Track Events with GA and Enable it

4. Save the changes and click on USE THESE SETTINGS to continue until you reach the Embed Gallery section.

5. Now click on Copy Embed Code to copy the HTML code that you can paste in your website.

6. In this demo, we will add this HTML code to a WordPress sample page.

7. Please make sure that you have already added Google Analytics in your website before adding this code.

8. We will now add the copied HTML code to this sample page and save the changes.

9. Now if we try to access this page, it should display our video Gallery.

Once you have an active Google Analytics Tracking Code added to your website and added a Gallery with Google Analytics Enabled, you can follow these steps to check the user activity data:

1. Login and access to your Google Analytics Account: https://analytics.google.com/

2. Click on Realtime >> Events >> Cincopa Galleries
