How to install Identick on your website

Identick collects metadata about your visitors’ traffic. The way we do it is very similar to Google Analytics or many other web-analytics tools, using a small JS snippet. You need to install this code in every page that you want to monitor. Usually customers install it in all their public pages. You can install the tracking code in several ways:

  1. Google Tag Manager - If you already have Google Tag Manager installed on your website, it’s probably the best way to install the tracking code. Just log in to your Google Tag Manager dashboard, go tags, click on new, click on the top box – Tag Configuration, and in the “Choose Tag Type” menu select Custom HTML. Then paste the tracking code that we provided you with.
    In the “Triggering” box select “All Pages” or any other custom triggers that you would like to monitor.

  2. Content Management System (such as Wordpress) – Most of the popular content management systems have plug-ins that let you install custom tracking code. For example, Wordpress has this Tracking-Code Manager plug-in.
    Please note that we do not currently maintain any such plug-in and the use of third party plug-ins are at your own risk. A way to reduce the risk of third party plug-ins is to use the Google Tag Manager.

  3. Manually – ou can also install the tracking code “manually” on your website by adding it to your website’s code. This option is not recommended as you have to manage it yourself and remember to add it to any new page. Still, you or your website developers can add the tracking code, which should work. If you choose this option, please consider contacting us after the installation to make sure that we see the logs flowing to our systems.

Identick's tracking code

The tracking code is a small piece of javascript that you should install on any web page that you would like us to monitor. This tracking code will send us the metadata that will help us analyze your website's traffic. In addition we'll use a cookie to identify the visiting devices.
This process is very standard and most web analytics tools use it.

The tracking code looks like this:

<script>
    window.identick = '***unique_id***'
    !function(i,d,e,n,t,c,k){i.Identick=e;i[e]||(i[e]=function(){
    (i[e].q=i[e].q||[]).push(arguments)});i[e].l=+new Date;c=d.createElement(n);
    k=d.getElementsByTagName(n)[0];c.src=t;k.parentNode.insertBefore(c,k)}
    (window,document,'idntk','script','//cdn.identick.com/intel.js');
</script>
                  
Where ***unique_id*** is the unique ID that we provided you with. If you don't know what your unique ID is or if you have never contacted us, just drop us a message and we would love to provide you with one.
