When it comes to your traffic analytics, it’s hard to beat the dynamic duo of Google Analytics and HubSpot. While both platforms offer valuable insights through analytics, each possesses unique strengths that, when combined, provide a holistic view of your online presence.

Despite HubSpot’s robust native analytics capabilities, many find themselves drawn to certain features in Google Analytics. It’s like having two lenses through which to view your data – one focused on contacts and customers, courtesy of HubSpot, and the other providing an in-depth, granular analysis of website pages, courtesy of Google Analytics.

When you integrate Google Analytics with HubSpot, you enhance your ability to collect and analyze visitor data on your HubSpot webpages, landing pages, and blog. In today’s post, we’ll take you through the steps of connecting your Google Analytics to HubSpot. 

The Google Analytics integration with HubSpot offers two distinct methods, each tailored to your specific HubSpot subscription level and tracking needs:

  1. Integration via Google Analytics Measurement ID:
  • Integration Method: This approach involves adding a Google Analytics Measurement ID to your HubSpot settings. It offers seamless integration for users with the specified subscription tier. By including the Measurement ID, you enable data collection on your HubSpot-hosted content, ensuring that you have access to valuable visitor insights.
  • Note: Users with a Marketing Hub Starter subscription and no CMS Hub subscription can only integrate using a Measurement ID.
  1. Manual Integration with Tracking Code Snippet:
  • Integration Method: For those who want more extensive tracking capabilities, you can manually add your Google Analytics tracking code snippet to the site header HTML for your domain. This method provides a higher degree of flexibility as it allows you to track not only your entire site but also specific blogs or pages. It’s a versatile option for tailoring your tracking efforts to meet specific analytical requirements.

Select the integration method that works best for you.
