If you don't have a Google Analytics account yet


If you don't have an account, create one for free at http://www.google.com/analytics/

If you're creating a new account, we recommend choosing the option to create an account with Universal Analytics, which is the new version of Analytics being introduced since 2013.

Then follow this tutorial to integrate Bookeo with Google Universal Analytics.




If you already have a Google Analytics account


In 2013 Google started introducing in beta a new version of Analytics, called Universal Analytics. The older version is still perfectly supported by Google and Bookeo, and we believe it will be supported for a long time, to avoid disruptions for the millions of web sites that use it.

If you create a new Google Analytics account, we recommend choosing the options to sign up for Universal Analytics. If you already have an Analytics account, look at the Analytics code in your web site to understand if you're using Universal Analytics or the old Analytics.

If the tracking code in your web site looks like this:

<script type="text/javascript">
  var _gaq = _gaq || [];

.....


then you're using the old Analytics. In this case, follow this tutorial to integrate Bookeo with Google Classic Analytics.

If the tracking code in your web site looks like this:


<script>
  (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
....


then you're using Universal Analytics. ​In this case, follow this tutorial to integrate Bookeo with Google Universal Analytics.
