To track hundreds of websites all at once with Google Analytics, you can use the Google Analytics 360 Suite, which is a paid enterprise-level solution offered by Google.


With the Google Analytics 360 Suite, you can use the "Roll-Up Reporting" feature to combine data from multiple websites into a single view. This allows you to see the aggregate data for all of your websites in one place, which can be very useful for analyzing trends and identifying patterns across your entire web presence.


To set up Roll-Up Reporting in the Google Analytics 360 Suite, you will need to create a new property for each of your websites and then create a new Roll-Up property that will collect data from all of the individual properties. You will also need to set up filters to ensure that the Roll-Up property only includes the data that you want to analyze.


If you are using the free version of Google Analytics, you can still track multiple websites, but you will need to create a separate Google Analytics account for each website and then log in to each account separately to view the data. This can be time-consuming and inefficient if you have a large number of websites to track.

Unfortunately, there is no built-in way to track hundreds of websites at once with the free version of Google Analytics. However, there are a few workarounds you can consider:

  1. Use Google Tag Manager: Implement Google Tag Manager on each website and manage all the tracking codes from one central location. This will allow you to easily deploy and manage tags for multiple websites.
  2. Utilize Custom Dimensions or Campaign Parameters: You can use custom dimensions or campaign parameters to track different websites within a single Google Analytics property. By appending custom parameters to your URLs or using different custom dimensions per website, you can segment and track website performance.
  3. Use an API or Reporting Tools: Google Analytics provides APIs that allow you to extract data programmatically. By utilizing APIs, you can create custom reports or connect to reporting tools that can handle tracking multiple websites at once.
  4. Consider Google Analytics 360: If you have a larger budget, consider upgrading to Google Analytics 360. This enterprise-level solution offers more robust features, including roll-up reporting, which allows you to aggregate data from multiple websites into one view.


It's important to carefully plan and implement your tracking strategy to ensure data accuracy and maintain organization when dealing with a large number of websites.

Additionally, you can use the following approaches to track multiple websites at once with Google Analytics:

  1. Cross-Domain Tracking: If you have multiple related websites that users frequently navigate between, you can set up cross-domain tracking to track user behavior across all the websites as a single session. This can be done by implementing additional code and configuring settings in your Google Analytics account.
  2. Content Grouping: Use content grouping in Google Analytics to group your websites together based on specific criteria, such as industry, product line, or geographic region. This allows you to analyze data for each group as a whole, providing insights into overall performance.
  3. Custom Reporting: Create custom reports or dashboards in Google Analytics to aggregate data from multiple websites into a single view. This can be done by selecting the relevant metrics, dimensions, and filters for each website within the reporting interface.
  4. Third-Party Analytics Solutions: Consider using third-party analytics platforms or tools that specialize in multi-website tracking. These tools often provide more advanced features and dashboards specifically designed for managing and monitoring multiple websites at once.


Remember to review and comply with any privacy and data protection regulations when implementing tracking across multiple websites, and ensure that you have obtained the necessary consent from your users if applicable.
