Use Ghost code injection

In Ghost you can inject code across your entire site or on an individual post or page. Since Plausible needs to track analytics across your entire site, we’ll use the global code injection feature which can be found in the Ghost Admin settings menu.

Plausible requires the tracking code to be in the <head> of each page on your site, so paste it into the Header section and hit save.

All done! Your site is now fully integrated with Plausible. Login to your Plausible dashboard and start monitoring your site’s metrics!
