How to enable google analytics on collection item views?

Hi everyone,

Our blog post pages do not get tracked as page views in Google Analytics. We have Google Analytics / Tag Manager tracking our site and it works fine for tracking the pageviews of regular pages, but doesn’t seem to send through data to GA when someone is viewing a dynamic collection item, like a blog post page.

So to explain: we have a Webflow page at /blog, then if a visitor clicks on a blog post it loads a collection item: /blog/[article name]. This is a Webflow collection item, not a page, so to Google Analytics it looks like that visitor is no longer on the site.

I’ve checked the Sources tab in Chrome when visiting the blog post, and the usual google analytics / tag manager is not loaded when viewing a blog post, but it is on every other page.

Do I just add our tracking code to the custom code section of the blog post collection? Or do I need to add an empty Webflow page to host the blog content, so the pageview is tracked?

Thanks,
Jamie

GA needs to be present either globally or on each page and CMS template for tracking. So how are you loading GA? I can’t tell because you shared no resources, which is required for helping out.

Hi Jeff, apologies.
Here is my read-only link.

I would start here => Preview and debug containers - Tag Manager Help

Yes there is no pageview event fired when I click on a blog post, just a link click. Strange. Tag Manager Preview also goes into a ‘disconnected’ state when I view a blog post.

EDIT - I didn’t have the Tag Manager script in the body section of the collection page settings. Doh.
