To track registered users with Google Analytics, you need to implement User ID tracking. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Enable User ID Tracking: In your Google Analytics account, go to the Admin section, then navigate to the Property column and select "Tracking Info" under the Property column. From there, click on "User-ID" and enable the tracking.
  2. Assign User IDs: At the point of user registration or login, generate a unique User ID for each registered user in your system. This ID can be a username, email, or any other unique identifier.
  3. Implement User ID Tracking Code: Insert the User ID into the tracking code of each page on your website or app that the registered users will visit. Use the following code snippet:
1
2
3
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX-Y', 'auto');
ga('set', 'userId', USER_ID); // Replace USER_ID with the actual User ID
ga('send', 'pageview');


Make sure to replace 'UA-XXXXX-Y' with your actual Google Analytics tracking ID.

  1. Link User IDs with Existing Sessions: If you have existing sessions for registered users before implementing User ID tracking, you can link those sessions with the User IDs. Use the following code when the registered user logs in on your website:
1
2
3
ga('create', 'UA-XXXXX-Y', 'auto');
ga('set', 'userId', USER_ID); // Replace USER_ID with the actual User ID
ga('send', 'pageview');


By implementing the above steps, Google Analytics will associate all subsequent user interactions with the User IDs, allowing you to track and analyze the behavior of registered users separately from anonymous visitors.
