If you love data, chances are you use a powerful tool like Google Analytics (GA) to gain insights into how people interact with your website.
But did you know that you can also use your existing Google Analytics account to track your Wufoo forms?
We’ll show you how to sync up your Wufoo form with GA so you can measure its performance—regardless of how the form looks or where it gets shared!
Enable Google Analytics for Wufoo with one click
We’ve added a checkbox to the settings of every Wufoo form, old and new, to enable Google Analytics. It’s just as easy, then, to add Analytics to current forms as it is to add them to new forms. All you have to do is check the box:
Then, we’ll prompt you to enter your Google Analytics tracking ID and the domain name of your website.
How to find your Google Analytics tracking ID
Your tracking ID is that long string of letters and numbers that looks something like this: UA-1234567-8. To find your unique tracking ID:
- Navigate to Admin on the Google Analytics homepage
- Select your account from the drop-down menu
- Choose Property Settings from the Property column
Your tracking ID is at the top of your account’s Property Settings page. See this Google post for more detailed instructions on how to track down an elusive tracking ID.
Direct data to your domain
Because Wufoo forms all use the subdomain “yourusername.wudev.com,” you’ll have to give us your true domain name so we can attribute the form to your website. Your domain name is the website associated with your Google Analytics account, such as “yourwebsite.com.”

We’ve optimized the Wufoo + Google Analytics experience
Naturally, you want the most accurate page view and conversion counts possible. To get accurate counts, we add your tracking ID to the footer of each form, so that Google only tracks the views of fully loaded pages.
On multipage forms, we add your tracking ID to the footer of each page. This gives you insight into the page-to-page conversions of your forms and makes it easy to identify troublesome drop-off points. Nice!
Get insight into both standalone and embedded forms
You can add Analytics to any type of Wufoo form. It’s super straightforward to track standalone forms. Just click the checkbox and you’re done. Embedded forms are, however, a little trickier.
You can track embedded forms with Analytics in two ways: either on your website itself or by clicking the checkbox in form settings. Either way works, but, if you choose both, Analytics will count each page view and conversion twice. This doubles your conversion rate…in the worst way possible!
To get accurate page view and conversion counts, choose either website or in-form tracking for embedded forms, not both. To learn more about the nuances of tracking embedded forms, check out this help center post.
There you are! You have all the information you need to start tracking. We hope that Wufoo + Google Analytics makes it easier than ever to collect the data you need to evaluate your forms and make them even better.
