Google G4 analytics and Universal analytics


I have Google Universal analytics running successfully on my site. I put the google code for the universal analytics into the Analytics settings area on the X theme dashboard page.

I now have a new “G-ID” code for Google G4 analytics. Where do I put this? Do I just change the existing entry for universal analytics. I am concerned that if I do this I will lose any further data from the Universal Analytics.

Google are advising to insert code into the Head section of (my home page) I guess.

Can you help?



Hello Andy,

Thanks for writing in! It is best that your use the Google Site Kit plugin. This is the official WordPress plugin from Google.

Best Regards.

Thanks for your reply Ruenel
