Enabling Google Analytics on your Project

Read the Docs has native support for Google Analytics. You can enable it by:

  • Going to Admin > Advanced Settings in your project.
  • Fill in the Analytics code heading with your Google Tracking ID (example UA-123456674-1)

Once your documentation rebuilds it will include your Analytics tracking code and start sending data. Google Analytics usually takes 60 minutes, and sometimes can take up to a day before it starts reporting data.


Read the Docs takes some extra precautions with analytics to protect user privacy. As a result, users with Do Not Track enabled will not be counted for the purpose of analytics.

For more details, see the Do Not Track section of our privacy policy.
