Click “Save” to save the changes you’ve made.


Step 3. Set the Unique Visitor / ID Method

Select the “Advanced” Tab from “Edit Profile”.

Set the “Unique Visitor / ID Method” to Cookie based.


Step 4. Copy JavaScript

Copy the Javascript code from the input box and paste it in the web pages you want analyzed. In case of a dynamic website (CMS) it is sufficient to paste code once in the header or footer of your Web Page Template.


Tip: If you have pages that are very dense, complex, or long, place the javascript tracking code near the top of the page so you don’t miss those fast clickers.


Tip: You may also wish to consider entering additional your website data by IP Number, Filename, URL, or by Google parameter.

Congratulations! Logaholic is now enabled to run in Hybrid Mode.
