Tracking Code

Tracking codes are Javascript code snippets. Once added to the HTML of a web page, these code snippets track, collect, and send website user activity. This data is sent to a website analytics platform or service. SharpSpring utilizes its own tracking and analytics services, and it provides ways to utilize Google Analytics.
