To implement activity tracking code on a WordPress site, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Choose a tracking platform: There are several activity tracking platforms available like Google Analytics, Mixpanel, etc. Choose the one that best fits your needs.
  2. Generate the tracking code: Login to your tracking platform and generate the tracking code. You will need to paste this code in the header section of your WordPress site.
  3. Add the code to your WordPress site: You can add the tracking code to your WordPress site using a plugin or by manually adding it to the header.php file.
  4. If using a plugin: You can use plugins like “Header and Footer Scripts” or “Insert Headers and Footers” to easily add the tracking code to your WordPress site.
  5. If manually adding the code: a. Login to your WordPress Dashboard b. Go to Appearance -> Editor c. Find the header.php file and click on it d. Scroll to the header section of the file and paste the tracking code just before the closing </head> tag. e. Save the changes.
  6. Verify the code: After adding the code, verify that it is working correctly by checking your tracking platform for data.
  7. Start tracking: Once you have verified the code, you can start tracking your site activity like page views, clicks, and other metrics.
