Google Analytics is the industry-leading tool for tracking and reporting web traffic. LearnWorlds offers seamless integration with Google Analytics, allowing you to easily see how many people are visiting your website, where they are coming from, how long they are staying, how they are interacting with the site, and much more.

To comply with Google Consent Mode, users must accept the required cookies on your website, respecting their privacy preferences. These cookies, including necessary and analytics/marketing ones, are essential for tracking conversions from Google Ads campaigns while honoring user consent.

This article will assist you in seamlessly integrating Google Analytics 4 with LearnWorlds.

Set up the Google Analytics 4 Property

1. Visit the Google Analytics Website and log in with your account. 

2. Click on Settings Admin and Create a property.

3. Enter your property name, and select the reporting time zone and currency.

4. Click on Next, choose the Industry Category, Business size, Business objectives, etc, and click on Create to create your GA4 property. 

5. You need to configure the source of your data collection or data stream. First, select the type of platform you work with; for example, if you work with websites, select the Web platform option.

In the data stream creation panel that appears, insert your domain (Website URL) and assign a name to your stream (Stream name). Click on Create stream. Your data stream is now created, along with all the information needed to set up Google Analytics 4 with Learnworlds.
