How to install Getsitecontrol using Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a tag management system that makes adding HTML/JavaScript snippets to your website easier.

With the dedicated GTM tag, you can install Getsitecontrol on your website without dealing with the code at all.

Once added, the tag will allow you to create, edit, and publish widgets on your site directly from the Getsitecontrol dashboard.

Here’s how to install Getsitecontrol on a website via Google Tag Manager.

1. Add a new tag

Assuming Google Tag Manager is already installed on your website, open it and click ‘New Tag’.

The ‘New Tag’ section in the GTM dashboard

In the Tag Configuration section, click ‘Discover more tag types in the Community Template Gallery’.

The ‘Discover more tag types in the Community Template Gallery’ link

Scroll down or use the search option to find Getsitecontrol on the list.

2. Connect to Getsitecontrol

To connect your site to Getsitecontrol, specify your site ID when adding the tag.

To find your site ID in your Getsitecontrol dashboard, log in and click the Install code button at the top of the ‘All widgets’ section.

If you can’t see the button, visit the ‘Sites’ section of your dashboard, you’ll find it there:

You'll see the following piece of code. In our example, e4z0p9gw is the site ID:

Copy and paste it into the Site ID field in Google Tag Manager.

In the ‘Triggering’ section, choose to fire the tag on All Pages.

After choosing a name for your tag, click the ‘Save’ button.

Then, click the ‘Submit’ button and choose ‘Publish’ on the next screen to publish the tag.

Publishing the tag

That's it! You’ve added the Getsitecontrol script to your site. You can now create and edit widgets directly from your Getsitecontrol dashboard, and they’ll go live on your website once activated.

❗If you’ve followed the steps above but continue seeing the “Code snippet is not installed” message in your Getsitecontrol dashboard, chances are the system just needs more time to verify the code.

The error message doesn’t affect the functioning of the platform in any way, and as soon as you create and publish your first widget, the message will disappear on its own.

Should you be unable to see a widget on your website even after installing the code and activating the widget, please reach out to our Tech Support team.
