Using the Web Tracking System

Log into your account and head to Websites – Add New

You can also use the shortcuts at your home screen when logging into your account.
  1. Paste the address of your website’s home in the “Website URL” field.
  2. Name your website something that helps you identify it.
Dont use specific pages of your website here. The tracker will exclude all the data that comes from anywhere different than this address, so make sure its the home of your website.

After filling the fields, click on “CREATE” to have your website tagged into the system.

Dont worry if you use the wrong name of paste the wrong address, you can change them anytime you want.

Implementing the Traffic Reader

Once you successfully tagged your website, you receive a script that you can implement at the header of your website’s pages.

This works in a similar way as Google Analytics header script, so if you are familiar with it, the process is pretty simple.

The script you will receive starts working on your website as soon as you implement it.

It looks something like this:

<script async src="https://tgi.im/dh/js/D-12345abcde"></script>

There are different ways to implement this script in your website, they basically cover the following cases:

  • WordPress Site: You can go two ways with the marvel that is working with WordPress.
    • Pasting the script using the plugin Insert Headers and Footers inside the header section.
    • If your theme allows it, paste it in your additional headers section (commonly found on additional functions and styling sections where it allows you to add code to the header of the theme).
  • Custom made site:
    • If your site manages the site’s head scripts dynamically, just add it to your header controller.
    • If your site is composed of independent pages (why would you do this), add the header script to all the pages where you want the tracker to work.
  • Single-page web application:
    • Simply add the script to the header of the page that loads your app’s entry point.
    • You can use any dynamic loading controller to inject the header to the page on your bootstrap sequence.
You can verify that your traffic reader is working properly watching the visitor information coming in live as you implement the script on your website.
