To be a little more flexible you can store the tracker code in the application’s configuration file (/app/config/core.php). Moreover you can define a CakePHP (view) element that can be reused in other CakePHP projects.
Howto / source code:
- Define the view element (app/views/elements/google-analytics.ctp):
- Include the view element in app/views/default.ctp (just before </body>):
- Define the tracker code in the configuration (/app/config/core.php):
Configure::write('google-analytics.tracker-code', false); // disables Google Analytics Configure::write('google-analytics.tracker-code', 'YOUR-TRACKING-CODE'); // enables Google Analytics

Thank you very much!!! It is a very usefull tip.
Any update to this now – for analytics with domain?
this is good, but you can just add the script code google gives you to the app/view/element/footer/footer.ctp file in one shot. works well, and less involved.
Many thanks Dave. That’s what I was looking for 🙂
I have a script code provided by google. How can I integrate google analytics in my cake php website ?
