Guide to All Metricool Integrations

03 January 2024

Did you know that with Metricool you can integrate other websites and tools for advanced analytics, streamlined content creation, and a way to speed up your daily tasks? This post will serve as a guide to all of Metricool’s integrations, with explanations for how each works.

Integrate Metricool’s Tracking Code to Your Site

Among the first integrations is to connect Metricool with your website. But first, you need to create your Metricool account. You can opt for a Free or Premium account. This will depend on the brands you need to manage and the features that you need to have access to.

In the option Website/Blog Connection, click the configuration button and a new window will pop up with the following options. There are three options to integrate your website with Metricool in order to analyze all the metrics of your website: WordPress, JavaScript, or Tracking pixel.

Choose one of these options depending on the type of website:

Connect your blog or website with Metricool

Integrate Metricool with WordPress

▶️ Install “Metricool plugin for WordPress” in your website and activate it.

▶️ Select on the WordPress right side menu Metricool Plugin and add the identification code that appears in option A. It’s that simple.  

Metricool Plugin installs a Javascript code in the page footer and in all public pages. This way, it can register all the visits to your website and show them on Metricool’s dashboard.

You can uninstall this from your blog at anytime by deactivating the plugin or removing Metricool’s identification code in settings.

JavaScript Tag

Insert the JavaScript tracking code in the footer of the page, sidebar widget or main menu of your web. In a place where it replicates on all the pages in order to measure all your users interactions. This option is usually used for custom websites, Prestashop, Blogger, etc.

Tracking Pixel

⚠️ Less recommended option

Another option to integrate Metricool with webpages that don’t allow you to insert a JavaScript code.

However, bear in mind that with this alternative, you won’t obtain all the information. You can only monitor visits and demographic data. Apart from WordPress, Metricool can be integrated with other CMS platforms easily. Here you will find how to do it by using option B.

Integrate Metricool with Wix

Again, if you don’t have a WordPress or custom site, you can integrate your Wix website with Metricool. In your control panel, you can connect with your Wix session logged in:

**Remember to check that your site is published and has a domain connected.

  • In Settings inside your control panel: click on Settings > Custom Code.
  • Click +Add custom code at the top right.
  • Paste the code snippet into the text box and then enter a name for the code. As a tip, it is recommended to make it easy to recognize.
  • Next, select an option to add the code to pages: all pages or specific pages.
  • Choose whether you want it in certain parts of the page such as the Head or the body at the beginning and at the end. Click Apply.

For this case, paste the Metricool code and select the option for both all pages and the head.

Integrate Metricool with Shopify

In order to integrate the JavaScript code in Shopify, follow these steps:

❇️ Enter the Shopify control panel, go to Online Store and tap Themes. Click the button Actions and select Edit code.  

Select theme.liquid under the Layout folder.

On the right side, the code of the page will display. Scroll down to the page until you find the following tag: </head>  and add the JavaScript code before the closing </head> tag.

Make sure you save the changes and the integration is finalized. Everything is ready to start measuring.

Integrate Metricool in Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a tag management system (TMS) that allows you to update measurement codes known as tags on your website or app. The steps to integrate Metricool into Tag Manager are this simple:

  • Copy the JavaScript code from Metricool.
  • Go to Google Tag Manager and click to add a new tag. Then,  click on “all pages”.
  • Now, on the right side menu, select the custom html option and paste the code.

Metricool Integration with Square Space

How can you integrate a Square Space website with Metricool? You can do this by inserting the code from your customized Square Space account.

⚠️ However, this code insertion is only available for Premium Square Space users.

It also warns you that it may ask you to disable it during the process and to add the JavaScript to a code insertion field you need to include the <script></script> tags.

That said, here are the steps which you can also find on their website:

  • Go into the Code Insert Panel.
  • Add HTML or the scripts you need for each part of the page: header, footer, lock page, order confirmation page, or order status page.
  • When you have added the code, click Save.
Header<head>
Body</body>
Order confirmation page: number{orderId}
Order confirmation page: subtotal{orderSubtotal}
Order confirmation page: subtotal cents{orderSubtotalCents}
Order confirmation page: total{orderGrandTotal}
