Greetings All,

I have successfully deployed a working App for our Organization, built on Laravel TALL Stack (Tailwind, AlpineJS, Laravel & Livewire) deployed via a GitHub repository thru Laravel Forge, Hosted on Digital Ocean Servers.

I am in the process of adding Google Analytics to the site.

I’ve done the recommended add a analytics.blade.php file containing my site specific “Google Site Tag” (gtag.js) script, and added that to the appropriate file via @include() function.

Just not seeing where on Forge or Digital Ocean I can add the accompanying Tracking ID provided by the Google Ads campaigns page.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance! :)

Hi there @jochantrelle,

I believe that it is enough to include the Google Tracking tag to your Laravel views as you’ve done already, there should be no changes that you need to do on the server-side.
