Link your Ko-fi page with Google Analytics to learn more about visitors to your page. Find out where they’re coming from, which of your posts get the most views and much more. Use this information to make your page and content even better.
You'll have to create something called a Data Stream. This lets Google Analytics keep an eye on your page. You'll get a special code called a Measurement ID. Paste this code into your Ko-fi page settings. This helps Google Analytics see who's visiting your page and what they're doing.
- Scroll down to the bottom and paste in your Google Analytics ID/ Measurement ID there.
That's it! Within a few hours, you should start seeing data in Google Analytics.
By linking Google Analytics to your Ko-fi page, you can open up a world of possibilities.
Here are just a few examples:
Head to: Reports > User > Demographic Details
Head to: Reports > Engagement > Pages and screens
