      (Just secure your Tracking Code in this step. Don't worry about the rest of the instructions. No Coding is necessary!) 

  2. Place the Tracking Code in the ComWeb Site Configuration. (See Below)
Once your site has the Tracking Code, it will insert a script on every page and report all web activity on that page back to Google Analytics.
There are a wealth of reports you can get from Google Analytics but the default dashboard will give you a great insight into how well your site is being used.
