This feature is only available on our Business Plan and higher.



The Google Analytics integration allows you to send specific data points from your campaigns to your Google Analytics account. Keep in mind, ViralSweep provides you with our own analytics system, but if you want to send some additional data into Google Analytics, this integration will allow you to do so.


We strongly recommend setting up a separate Google Analytics Data Stream for ViralSweep, as this will make data much easier to read and filter when it is not combined with your other data streams.


When setting up your promotion, go to:

  1. Integrations > Google Analytics.

  2. Input your Google Analytics Measurement ID (starts with G-). To find this, go to your Google Analytics account, click Admin > Data Streams > Click on your Data Stream and you will see the Measurement ID.

Cross-Domain Tracking

If you are embedding your campaign into your own website, you will need to add the ViralSweep domain.

Go to Admin > Data Streams > Choose a Stream > Configure tag settings > Configure your domains

Add and as shown below:

Sending Data

ViralSweep will send the following to your Google Analytics account:

This will show you the amount of pageviews your promotion is receiving.

​1) Entry button clicked [entry_button_click]
This will show you the total number of clicks on the enter button. Please note that this is the total number of clicks, and is not directly related to the total number of entries. For example, if someone clicks the enter button but has not filled out all the fields, we will track that as a click on the enter button.

2) User Entry [user_entry]
This will show you the total number of successful entries.
