    Great Article..everything is clear. I have read all and I was able to install header and footer then I copy tracking code from google Analytics and then paste in myself… Save and then done

    I noticed in your video that you pasted the tracking code into the “Scripts in footer” area. This confuses me since Google’s instruction is to paste the tracking code “immediately before the closing tag” i.e, in the Header.

    Shouldn’t the tracking code be pasted into the “Scripts In Header” area then? Or perhaps it doesn’t make a difference?

      Hm.. My quote from Google included a piece of html code, but it was apparently removed. I tried to write “immediately before the closing tag”.

    • WPBeginner Support says:

      You can paste it in either. However, pasting it in the header is often recommended.
