- Copy and place the code snippet
Once you find the code snippet, copy and paste it into your web page, just before the closing </head> tag*. If your website uses templates to generate pages, enter it just before the closing </head> tag in the file that contains the <head> section. (Most websites re-use one file for common content, so it's likely that you won't have to place the code snippet on every single page of your website.)
For the best performance across all browsers we suggest you position other scripts in your site in one of these ways:
- before the tracking code snippet in the <head> section of your HTML
- after both the tracking code snippet and all page content (e.g. at the bottom of the HTML body)
- Verify and customize
Verify that your tracking code contains the correct web property ID for your profile (it should if you copied it from the Profile Settings screen). Double-check that the tracking snippet installed on your website matches the code shown in the profile. For more details on verifying your setup, see Verifying your setup.
Add any customizations back in using the asynchronous syntax. The Usage Guide and Migration Examples (English only) on Google Code provide many examples of customizations with asynchronous tracking.
