Moosend Website Tracking lets you record your website visitors actions and tie them to your campaigns.
By adding the code snippets that we provide to areas of your website HTML, you allow Moosend to check what your site visitors are doing at any given time. These events can be later used to trigger the automations you design, to create the ultimate personalization experience.
Let's see how it's done:
A. Finding the Tracked Websites page
1. Click on the Account button, located on the left side of your Dashboard page.
2. Choose the Tracked Websites option, on the menu that appears.
B. Adding a website to your tracking list
The first time you visit the Tracked Websites page you'll be prompted to fill-in your website's domain right away. Whenever you revisit the Tracked Websites page it will contain a list of the websites you've already added.
1. Click on the Add Website button to add a new website to your list.
2. Fill-in the domain of your website on the Website Domain area.
Keep in mind that your domain name will only be used to view instructions on how to install and configure the relevant tracking script.
3. Click on the Next button.
As soon as your website becomes connected to your Moosend account, a new mailing list will be created automatically, containing all upcoming subscribers of the website you have successfully connected.
C. Tracking an e-commerce platform or CMS
If you want to track the actions on your favourite e-commerce platform or CMS you can use any of our available plugins and install the website tracking script with just one click.
1. Click on the Install button, located next to each available plugin.
D. Tracking a custom installation
If you have a custom installation, or if your favorite platform is not yet available on our plugin list, you can always install the website tracking library by copying and pasting the appropriate code snippet into your website HEAD tag.

E. Validating Tracking Script Installation
1. Click on the Validate Installation button.

By clicking on the button you immediately place the code on your clipboard.
G. Navigating the Tracked Websites page
The Tracked Websites page contains some additional options which can be useful when you have a list of websites being tracked by Moosend.
Check the tracking status of each website.
The tracking status will indicate whether there's a verified connection between your domain and Moosend's tracking capabilities, or not.
Click on each domain name, to get directed to the tracking codes for this particular website.
Click on the X button, located right next to each domain, to delete it from your list of tracked websites.
