  1. Love yalls videos. Question on this, I am stuck at the part where you go into wordpress and add the global site tag. In my wordpress, I don’t have an editor options…under appearance I only have the options of themes, customize, widgets, menus, and theme settings. The username I am using created the page, so I don’t think it’s a matter of admin privileges, right? How can I add this if I can’t get there?

  2. Wow, you are very thorough and your communication skills are on point! I’m at 8:20 and already you’ve cleared up a lot of things for me.

  6. Great content sir. One question, does analytics allow you to retarget the people that you track or would I need to utilize my Facebook pixel?

  7. Sir can you please help me? I have two businesses a d would like to know how do I add the second business website to my analytics account?

    1. You can set-up separate Google Analytics accounts or properties within the same Google account. If the businesses are completely separate, I would set-up a Google Analytics account for each website.
