Can I track gallery visitors?

Pixellu Galleries can be connected to Google Analytics to help provide helpful data on gallery-related traffic, gallery experiences, and can help provide a deeper understanding of the performance of the created galleries. Below you can find the steps on how to link Google Analytics to Pixellu Galleries.

If you're already using Google Analytics to track galleries with a Universal Analytics Property Identifier (UA code)

If you're already tracking gallery events with Google Analytics and are not using the new Google Analytics 4 Property Identifier, you can simply add the Google Analytics 4 Property alongside the already existing Universal Analytics Property Identifier. Having them both connected to Pixellu Galleries will ensure that Google Analytics will continue tracking data after July 1st, 2023 with GA4 (when Google suspends the Universal Analytics system from processing data), as well as keep access to data that was tracked in the past before completely migrating to the new GA4 system.

Note: Google will remove existing data tied to the Universal Analytics system, but has stated that this data will remain accessible for the foreseeable future. To know when Google completely purges this data linked to your Google Analytics account, please keep an eye here for when they release this information. Having both identifiers linked to your Pixellu Galleries account helps ensure you keep access to this data until Google fully removes it, as well as records future data with the new GA4 property after July 1st, 2023.

For the majority of users, Google created a GA4 property identifier automatically (see here) and should include a majority of the same settings. However, if the new GA4 property does not contain the same settings, we can recommend checking to ensure the same specifications are set to ensure the same data is recorded. To locate the new GA4 property identifier, please follow these steps outlined by Google. If Google has not created a GA4 property identifier automatically within your account, a completely new property for Pixellu Galleries would need to be created by following the steps in the section below titled "If you're setting up Google Analytics for the first time."

Once you have located the GA4 property identifier, copy and paste it to the Google Analytics section under your Pixellu Galleries preferences, as shown here (ID code that starts with " G-"):

If you're setting up Google Analytics for the first time

If you would like to link Pixellu Galleries to Google Analytics to start tracking metrics for galleries, a new property would need to be created for Pixellu Galleries. To create a new property to link Google Analytics and Pixellu Galleries, please follow these steps outlined by Google.

Once a property has been created, the Galleries URL would then need to be entered under the  Data Streams tab (see here). You can retrieve the SmartSlides URL within your Pixellu Galleries Preferences, as shown here:

Note: The exact URL would need to be entered into Google Analytics followed by "" to help ensure the connection between Google and Pixellu Galleries is valid.

Once this Data Stream has been created, the last step is to copy and paste the Google Analytics property identifier into your Galleries account to complete the linkage process. You can locate the GA4 Property Identifier under the same  Data Stream tab when viewing the Pixellu Galleries property details. Simply copy/paste this code into the Google Analytics tab within SmartSlides, as shown below (ID code that starts with "G-"):
And that's it! Please note that it may take up to 48 hours for the linkage to be completed. If you have any questions or need assistance, don't hesitate to reach out to us at, we'd love to help!
