Setting up Analytics and Search Console for all versions of website

Hi,
 
I am looking to confirm the process for setting up analytics and search console for all versions of the site.
 
For example: 
 
1) Will 1 analytics code track both versions?
or
2) Do I need to create 2 separate properties in the analytics account and link these to properties within search console?
 
If the answer is 2 then, does this mean that the two analytics properties have separate analytics data, or does it collaborate into one?

Hi Frazer

1 Analytics code will track both versions. 

So you don't need 2 seperate properties. You might want to create 3 different views on the property. One for domain.com, one for m.domain.com and one that includes both. That makes it easier to analyze aspectss of each version if neccesary.

Hi @Frazer M,

 

@Jonas Ø is right. If you use the same GA tracking snippet, you can track both domains under same property but it is not possible to link multiple search console accounts with a single property. This means that if you want to have data from multiple Search Console accounts in a single Google Analytics property, you cannot do this.

 

I hope this helps.

One of the suggested tasks in the email received from search console when you create a new property in it, is to create properties for every version of the site.  

How should I be handling this if I only have 1 analytics property for the site?
