To start tracking your website visitors you need to install a lightweight tracking code to your website.

You can do this in 3 main ways:

  1. Install it manually
  2. Use Google Tag Manager
  3. Use the native CMS plugin for WordPress, Joomla!, or Drupal (ver. 7 and 8 supported)

In this tutorial, we’ll cover the manual installation options and installation using Google Tag Manager.

If you wish to use the native CMS plugin, please follow the respective link:

Manual installation

1. Copy the code below to your clipboard.

<script type="text/javascript">

(function(a,l,b,c,r,s){_nQc=c,r=a.createElement(l),s=a.getElementsByTagName(l)[0];r.async=1;r.src=l.src=("https:"==a.location.protocol?"https://":"http://")+b;s.parentNode.insertBefore(r,s);})(document,"script","serve.albacross.com/track.js","__REPLACE_THIS_WITH_YOUR_CLIENT_ID__");

</script>

2. Paste it before the closing </body> tag of all pages of your website but not save the changes yet. 

3. Replace this placeholder __REPLACE_THIS_WITH_YOUR_CLIENT_ID__ with your unique Client ID. You can find it in your account settings under the Company Details tab, or just by clicking here.

Important: Make sure to put your valid Client ID into the code, otherwise you won’t be tracking leads. 

Here is the detailed instruction on how to find your Client ID
