Google Analytics

Redbubble allows you to use Google Analytics to track and report on visitors to your profile and works.

To use this feature, you will need an account with Google Analytics.

If you already use Google Analytics, you can add your Redbubble profile and works pages to your Google Analytics account using your "Web Property ID". A Web Property ID is a tracking code provided by Google that, when added to your Redbubble account, allows Google to track your visitor statistics.


Getting set up with Google Analytics

  • Create a new Google Analytics account, or add a new profile to your existing Google Analytics account
  • Make sure 'Web Site' is selected under 'What would you like to track'
