Add a website or an app
If you want to start collecting data from your website or app, you need to add it to Piwik PRO and install a tracking code.
To add a website or an app, follow these steps:
- Go to Menu > Administration.
- Navigate to Websites & apps.
- Click Add new website or app.
- Type a website name and URL. If you want to have more domains combined under one website, add more URLs. When you’re done, click Save.
- Double check if the URL is correct.
- Set the time zone and currency for the website. All reports will show data in the time for the given zone. The goal reports will show data with chosen currency.
- Optionally, set advanced options described later in this article.
- Navigate to Permissions, and grant permissions for users.
- Navigate to Installation and install the tracking code to your website or app.
Tip: We advise you to create a separate website for a member site, help center, developers site, and blog. And not to mix data from these sites under one website. It’ll help you keep data clean, and you’ll have a better view on different groups of your visitors — sign-up customers, customers who look for help, developers, and blog readers.
For each website or app, you can specify additional conditions under which Piwik PRO will collect data. Here’s the list of these options:
- Delay: This slows down the loading time of your page so that all tags have enough time to fire.
- GDPR compliance: Allows to collect consents via Consent Manager and fire tags according to the consent type.
- Exact match URLs when tracking: Forces Piwik PRO to track data for the website or app with the URL defined in general settings.
- Keep page URL fragments when tracking: Let’s you keep URLs with fragments like
#bottom. When turned off, the URL will look like this
- Site search tracking: Allows to track internal searches on your website. You might need to add query parameters to the list to make it work properly.
- E-Commerce tracking: Allows to track e-commerce data and show it in reports.
- Exclude IPs: Lets you exclude tracking data from a given IP address, for example the IP in your office. To exclude, you can use the wildcard, for example
- Exclude URL parameters: Lets you exclude parameters from the URL, making your reports look cleaner. For example, instead of the URL that looks like this
clearbank.com/?_stg_debugyou’ll see the URL that looks like this
- Exclude User Agents: Lets you exclude tracking data when a visitor uses the user agent.
