TraceMyIP app provides its users with a JavaScript or HTML code that can be embedded into the Wix-built pages to allow collecting personal visitation statistics for website builder-produced websites. Note that this method uses “Add Element” functionality of the Wix editor that loads the tracker code via an iframe element, which has a limitation of displaying the actual browser path of landing pages. The landing page data will reflect the actual Wix URLs that contain the website page data. This, however, does not affect the visitor tracker functionality in any other way.

    3. At the bottom of the page, find the ADVANCED section and click on the Custom Code block
    4. Paste your visitor tracker code and set the drop-down menu to “Load on each new page”.
    5. Select the Place Code in option – Body Start (preferred for reliable tracking) or Body End (footer placement)
    6. If you need to hide the visitor tracker status icon, you can use the invisible tracking option.

  6. Now, right-click on the Wix element that you have just added (the visitor tracker icon will now be visible if you have not enabled the invisible tracker icon) and enable the option “Show on All Pages“.

  7. Now click on the “Publish” button at the top right of the browser window wix-publish-visitor-tracking-code-page

Confirming the tracker installation

Visit your site and confirm that the tracker icon appears on all pages of your site. If you selectively install the visitor tracker code on individual pages, the tracker is not going to record all visitations to your website. Ensure that the code is also installed on your mobile website template.

If you choose to monitor only individual pages on your website using the same project, utilize the same code and the tracker style on all of your pages. Note that Wix has an implementation for FREE users that partially limits the data that the tracker receives, especially for referrer and landing page URL data.

Concluding the installation

Once you have installed and configured your IP tracker, ensure that it is loaded on ALL pages of your site.

A page header is a preferable location since it will allow the visitors to be detected as soon as the pages are loaded.

If you install the tracker in the footer, it may not work if you have infinite scrolling pages where the content is loaded infinitely as you scroll the pages down. In this case, the tracker code needs to be installed at the top of your pages.
