Plausible Analytics

What is the API key and why do I need it?

Plausible cannot accept custom events on the fly, it requires they be created before they can be tracked. An API key allows Conversion Bridge to sync the necessary custom events.

To get an API key, go to https://plausible.io/yourdomain.com/settings/integrations/?new_key

This URL will be unique for your website. Unfortunately, Plausible does not make this feature visible by default for some reason so you will need to copy and adjust this URL for your domain.

What is a Custom Domain?

Plausible Analytics allows you to set a custom proxy domain to serve the analytics tracking JavaScript. This allows for both white labeling the analytics and also making it more likely your tracking script is not blocked by ad blocking software resulting in more accurate analytics.

Once your custom domain is properly set up and configured, enter the url in your Conversion Bridge settings.

Plausible Analytics allows you to share your analytics dashboard with others. Conversion Bridge makes use of this feature to embed your analytics dashboard into your WordPress admin.

Go to the Visibility tab in your Plausible site settings tab and generate a link. Copy the generated link and paste it into the Conversion Bridge settings and a new admin page will automatically be setup to give you access to view your stats.

You do not need to build the embed URL, Conversion Bridge handles that automatically

Do I need to exclude the script tag?

By default, Conversion Bridge will add the core JavaScript tag to your website for the basic page view tracking. However, if you have used another plugin or a custom code method for including the main JavaScript tracking code, you can exclude Conversion Bridge from also adding this tracking script and causing double page views.
