We have just launched our new Google Analytics reporting system. This system allows you to track almost all of your visitors in Google Analytics (GA), assuming your Google Analytics is correctly installed on your site.
Once you have enabled Google Analytics tracking you will instantly start to see our visitors in your Google Analytics account as they visit your site in real-time.
How Google Analytics Tracking works
After you enable Google Analytics tracking, our system scans your website for your Google Analytics code and obtains the Google Analytics Tracking ID from your webpages HTML. If you have multiple Tracking ID's installed on your page, the first one is used.
Then whenever we receive a visitor that matches the targeting you choose we first send them to our tracking page which counts the visitor in our dashboard, and at the same time, we send the visitors details to your Google Analytics account to count as a page view. The visitor is then forwarded to your website.
Having the extra step of sending the pageview to your Google Analytics does slightly slow down the forwarding process, but generally, it only takes a few milliseconds and is not noticeable by the visitor. So for most cases, the slight decrease in overall website loading speed is worth the extra tracking accuracy.
