When Google first launched AMP, they originally recommended setting up a separate Google Analytics profile to track your AMP traffic, and so we recommended the same.
This meant that to see a full view of your traffic, you had to toggle between the two profiles. And if you are a fan of Google's Real Time Analytics, you know that looking at just half of your real time traffic is only half as exciting.
Recently Google added support to track AMP separately in Google Analytics (via the data source attribute), and so we’re updating our AMP integration.
We now require you actually run both your regular web site and AMP site under a single Google Analytics profile. This should make things a lot easier for you to get a single login big picture of your own site in Google Analytics and will make integration with the Mediavine Dashboard easier.
Here's how to do it:
If you are running the Mediavine Control Panel Plugin, you're going to take out the separate analytics profile number and replace it with your original Google Analytics number.
What's my "original" Google Analytics number?
When you log into Google analytics and you click the little GA bar graph icon in the top left corner, a dropdown menu displays with your current analytics properties.
You are looking for the number you used for tracking before setting up that additional AMP analytics property. Copy that number, and then head to your Wordpress dashboard.
Hover over Settings, and then click on your Mediavine Control Panel plugin. Scroll down to your AMP analytics settings and paste the number you copied in the box asking for your UA code.
Save the change, and that's it!
