Getting Started

Getting Started with Netbiscuits Analytics

We’ve made it simple to get Netbiscuits Analytics running on your site so you can get straight into understanding how visitors engage with your content.

  • Take the guesswork out of your content marketing strategy
  • Optimize your content for maximum engagement and conversion
  • Learn how different visitor personas engage with your content

This page will tell you everything you need to know to get started, whether you’re a digital marketer or a web developer.

If you haven’t already signed up, the first step is to register for a free 30 day trial. There’s nothing to pay and no commitment beyond the trial period. Although we’re convinced that once you’ve tried it, you’ll want to keep it.

Generating your analytics tracking code

Netbiscuits Analytics walks you through the whole process of getting the analytics code up and running on your website. As soon as you sign up we’ll send you an email with an account activation link. This takes you straight to the login page where, on your first login, you’ll be able to grab the code snippet you need to drop into your website. There’s a giant Get the Code Snippet for your website button – just click and we’ll generate a unique code for you. No mess, no fuss, no hassle.

Oh, and the trial period doesn’t start until you put the analytics tracking code live on your site, so you get a full 30 days of data for free.

How to add the code to your website >>

Installing the code on your website

Now you have your code you can either copy & paste it manually into a text file, ready to be inserted into your website, or you can click the handy Copy my code to clipboard button and we’ll take care of it for you. Then you just need to drop it into the <body> tag at the top of your web pages.

Or if you use a tag management system, you can install the code there instead. If you need to get an IT or web team to carry out this step for you, you might want to point them in the direction of our Knowledge Base.

And remember the 30 day trial only starts once the code is live, so there’s no stress if you do need IT to deploy it.

Using the built-in demo data to get started >>

Demo Data gets you started in no time

Because it can take you some time to collect enough meaningful data from your own site, we’ve included a set of demo data within Netbiscuits Analytics to help you find your way around. When you log in, there’s a button at the top of the screen which allows you to switch demo data on or off. We’d recommend you try this out to begin with, combining it with the Tips & Trick tutorials, so you’re already clued up when you want to start analyzing your own visitor data.
