Monitoring a site

To monitor a site, you should include the following code in all your pages and substitute the number 999999 by the SiteId that was provided to you.

<!-- Matomo -->
<script type=”text/javascript”>
   var _paq = window._paq || [];
   /* tracker methods like “setCustomDimension” should be called before “trackPageView” */
   (function() {
     var u=””;
     _paq.push([‘setTrackUrl’, u+’matomo.php’]);
     _paq.push([‘setSiteId’, ‘999999’]);
     var d=document, g=d.createElement(‘script’), s=d.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0];
     g.type=’text/javascript’; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+’matomo.js’; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s);
   })(); </script> <!-- End Matomo Code -->

In case you do not use JavaScript, you can use image tracking.

<!-- Matomo Image Tracker -->
<img src=”” style=”border:0” alt=”” />
<!-- End Matomo -->
