How to integrate the javascript code into your website

The html code

Every website is coded with html. A very simple version will look like this:

Html 5

 

Your website will have a lot of more content. Your website will have more tags inside the “body” tag. But the basic structure will be very similar to the example.

-> Find a possibility to edit the html code of your website. Nearly every CMS like WordPress, every plattform where you can create your own website offer this. In wordpress you can edit the theme or even use the text tab if you edit a post/page.

If you don’t have an idea how to edit the html code in google search for “plattform edit html”. Please replace plattform with “blogger.com” or any other plattform you are using.

In the last case you can even ask a developer to do it for you. It is just a task of five minutes.

Where to insert the code

body tag

 

Search for the “</body>” tag inside your html code. You can find it at the bottom of your html code. You can even use the search function to find it.

Insert the code

Completed

Insert the Javascript code before the “</body>” tag. Check out the image how it should look like.

After you inserted the javascript code save the html code. You have successfull installed Zero Bounce V2!

 

If you still don’t know  how to do it yourself – you can hire someone at Fiverr for $5 . Just visit https://www.fiverr.com and search “edit html”.
