That will open a popup where you'll scroll down to the section "Tagging instructions". In that section click on "Global site tag" to reveal the code you need to copy.

Once you've copied this code, keep it aside on a file where you can recover it quickly.

Header & Footer For WordPress

Since we cannot edit our files using a file manager on Elementor Cloud, we need to add a module that will always inject content for us, either on the footer or header.

Insert Headers And Footers

Code such as Google Analytics tracking code, Facebook Pixels code, and Google Optimize code for A/B testing may be included in your WordPress website headers and footers with the WP Headers and Footers plugin. Inserting the code does not necessitate editing the theme files.

This plugin's user-friendly interface makes it easy to add code and other scripts to your WordPress site (Headers, Footers, and Body section).

Key Features

  • Insert code to your WordPress headers & Footers
  • Insert Google Analytics

With the use of Headers and Footer, we'll be able to add our content to Elementor Cloud. Once the plugin is enabled access the settings then WP headers and Footer.

On the section Script in Header, you'll add your code and make sure past you've copied from Google. You should have something like this.
