Add website details
Next, enter the domain name for the website you want to use Volument on.
For example mywebsite.com without the https and www parts.
We'll automatically include subdomains like “www,“ so don't worry about those.
At this stage, we also need your company name, which is displayed in the menus and headings.
Embed the script
To start collecting data, you must embed the script on your website.
Here you can also choose whether you want to show a cookie banner to your visitors in the EU. Learn more about our approach to data privacy.
Copy the Volument script code and place it into your website's <head> section.
You can see two configuration variables on the script tag:
The analytics token you receive after creating a new project. This is required. Tracking is disabled if there is no token.
This standard script- tag attribute ensures that the script will be fetched in parallel to parsing and evaluated as soon as it is available. That is: the script won't block the execution of the page and makes the page load faster.
That's it! Once you've embedded the script and our system has detected it, you can start using Volument. You will see your first data in the Analytics view in one hour.
