Google Analytics is the ultimate dashboard for website owners, allowing you to watch pageviews in real-time or dive deep into demographic data. And you can add Google Analytics to any Squarespace website, though the option to do so is a little hidden. Here's how to find it.

To get started you'll need to register for a free Google Analytics account. Then keep reading to grab your Analytics ID code and add it to your Squarespace page.

How to Find Your Google Analytics Tracking Code
