Setting up Google Analytics for a website using multiple CMS

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi guys,
I would be glad to hear your opinion/advice on setting up GA for a website that has multiple CMS.
For example:
Website #1: www.mysite.com
website #2: www.mysite.com/product1/
website #3: www.mysite.com/product2/

 

All of these sites have separate logins. 


Do I need to install separate GA for each of these sites that are under the same domain? 

 

Can you please advice what would be the best (correct) way to install analytics?

 

Thanks a lot!

You can use the same GA property without any issues.

 

If required you can create multiple views with right filters based on the links like:

 

Website #1: www.mysite.com
website #2: www.mysite.com/product1/
website #3: www.mysite.com/product2/

Hi Sarah,

If you want to see the stats for each site in the same property then you need to set up a single property and use it for every CMS. You can set up multiple views and create include only filters for each CMS. If you have different admins for each CMS and you want to track them separately you can set up a different property for each. I'd recommend using the first option. Hope this helps.

Thanks Arnold!
When you say "if you want to see the stats for each site in the same property then you need to set up a single property and use it for every CMS" Do you mean install the same GA tracking code on each CMS?
(Every site has different logins)
Thanks a lot!
