Yandex.Metrica provides a range of features for evaluating website performance: user behavior analysis, achievement of business goals, and filtering out robot visits. To get this information, you need to configure the counter. On the counter setup page, note the following sections:
Official Yandex.Metrica plugins are available for the most popular CMS programs, which can install the counter code automatically. In most cases, all you need to do is install the plugin and log in.
If you use multiple CMSs on the same website (for instance, you have one for the site content and another that runs a forum), you need to add the counter code to all of them.
After installation, the counter will be available on the My counters page. Data starts being collected immediately. A few minutes after you have installed the code, the My counters page shows the verification status for whether the counter is correctly installed.
You can edit the counter code (for example, enable or disable collecting certain data). However, you will need to replace the code on all the site's pages. After a counter is edited, all previously accumulated data is not recalculated.
To check whether the counter code is correctly installed, append the ym_debug parameter with the value 1 to the page address in the browser's address bar, and reload the page.
If the counter code is installed correctly, it begins transmitting data. You will see this data in your browser console.
The browser console usually opens with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + J (⌥ + ⌘ + J for Mac).
If there is no data in the console, this may be caused by the following:
Other scripts are blocking the Yandex.Metrica counter on the site. You can check this in the browser console.
