Search for Google Analytics Tracking Code (GATC) - Exercise
Search for Google Analytics Tracking Code (GATC)
Duration: 15 to 20 minutes.
Find at least two of your favorite websites and see if you can determine if they are using Google Analytics.
There are two ways to find out which websites are using GATC.
- Visit any website you like and view the page source to display the code that is running behind the webpage. Using the search functionality, look for urchin.js or ga.js.
- Most web browsers will show the list of cookies in the Options or Preferences menu. Once you get to this section, look for the particular domain names which you visited and review the cookies which were installed by each of these domains. Websites which are installing Google analytics cookies are using GATC.
