In this tutorial we'll be looking on how to add your Google Analytics code or your Google Search console code onto you Squarespace page. We're going to do one just for Google Analytics but the same steps will work for your Google Search console if you want to link that. The first thing we have to do is to go to Google Analytics site, then go to Property Settings panel, click on “Tracking Info” then hit “Tracking Code” and copy the Global Site Tag. Go back to your Squarespace site and open “Settings”, scroll down and select “Advanced” and click where it says “Code Injection”. Delete the content in the Footer box and paste the Global Site Tag in the Header box. If you’re using the Google Search console there’ll be an option to add a meta tag and that’s the option that you’re gonna use for Squarespace and you’re gonna paste that also in the Header box; after this click on “Save”. So, once it’s there any header will be recognized by Google if your site is public, however if your site is private nobody can see it including Google.
