Google Analytics can be a valuable tool for tracking user behavior on your website, but should always be used in conjunction with your overall content strategy process.
Every Georgetown-hosted WordPress site is configured in Google Analytics. To request access to your site’s data, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you are given access, you can log in at any time at analytics.google.com.
Universal Analytics to Google Analytics 4
Google Analytics 4, Google’s new web analytics platform, replaced Universal Analytics in July 2023. The Web Services team has configured Georgetown-hosted WordPress websites in GA4, and your current access should mirror your previous UA access level.
Please refer to Web Services’ Google Analytics 4 documentation for more information.
