Activating Personyze On Your Site

Installing Personyze on your website involves two steps:

UI Path: Account Settings > General > Tracker Settings

  1. Tell Personyze the URL of all domains and sub-domains that you want to track. This can happen either when you create your account, or by going to Tracker Settings.

  2. Get one of the two Personyze tracking codes (snippets), which are unique to your account, and copy/paste them into your website, in one of two ways:


    WARNING: DO NOT USE THE DIFFERENT CODES INTERCHANGEABLY

    1. Master Page Header – The code must be installed in the <head> tag of the HTML to ensure optimal performance. We recommend installing the Personyze  code as high up in the head tag as possible, generally after your <html> tag, charset declarations, and possibly other meta tags.

      If the code is added anywhere lower in the head tag, it will technically still work. But if the page has already loaded content that the visitor sees before the Personyze code loads, it may cause a slight delay in Personyze’s personalization changes.
    2. Tag Manager – You can use Tag Management, but Ideally, you should load Personyze outside of a tag manager, because Google Tag Manager (you can use our integration with Google tag manager), for example, doesn’t support synchronous loading in some cases. If you do, you should add the snippet as early in the execution path as possible.

      So, depending on the type of personalization campaigns running on your site, you may encounter issues with page flashing when Personyze replaces existing page content (though new content such as pop-ups, banners, or recommendations being added should display normally) or missing reports to Google Analytics on campaign execution.

Personalizing One-page Applications

UI Path: Account Settings > General Settings > Tracker Settings

If you want to personalize a one-page application, switch the button “Single Page Application” to On, in the account Tracker settings.

Activating the above function adds a new record to page views history of the current user, checks for new audience matches, and replaces previous page-view placeholder content to create a personalized version of the page.

 

 

Cross-Domain Tracking

Personyze enables automatic tracking of user activities across different domains! Doing so will enable you to track the entire activity of users throughout all your domains
