Google Analytics is flexible and can support different account configurations, but your setup affects how data appears in your reports. To help plan your setup, consult the articles in our overview of accounts, users, properties, and views.
If you’re setting up Google Analytics to track an app, consult our best practices for mobile app analytics setup.
Step 3: Setup your tracking code.
Include the Analytics tracking ID and code in your website or mobile app in order to collect and send usage data to your Analytics account. You can track multiple properties in the same account, but every property must be set up individually. Follow different processes to set up web tracking and to set up mobile app tracking.
