How to Add an Account access to all sites added to the account.
The first thing to do when you want to monitor a site is to create an Account that you can link the site to.
Go to: ‘Manage’ -> ‘Add account’.
Name your Account and give it a short description.
Adding sites to an Account
The first thing you want to do to start tracking a site is to figure out if it should belong to an existing Account or if a new Account should be set up.
Adding a site to an existing Account
If you already know that your site should belong to an existing account go to:
‘Manage’ -> ‘Add site’
Here you can create your site and select the Account it should belong to.
Creating a site and adding it to a new Account
If your site should be assigned to a new account, you’ll need to create the account first. Go to:
‘Manage’ -> ‘Add account’
Name your account and give a description and click ‘Create account’.
This will take you to the ‘Add site’-page. Enter your site name and the site-URL and select the account you just created as the one the site should be added to.
Naming your Accounts
There are a few considerations to be made when naming and describing your Account, however.
• Account names have a maximum of 32 characters.
• Account description has a maximum 250 characters.
Creating an Account shared with a specific Publishing/AdOp house
Here the smartest naming solution would be to name the Account using the Publishing house name.
o Example: The publisher, the Daily Planet, would like to be able to see the stats on the sites, def.com & ghi.com. Create Account with name ‘Daily Planet USA’ and add the specific sites to it.
Other general considerations regarding names
Adding some form of country identifier to the Account name is a huge help in the general overview of Accounts. Remember, support and admins have a lot more Accounts added, and identifiers make their job a lot easier, and therefore making support for you a lot more effective.
o Example – TV2 is a very popular tv station name in many countries, so naming your Account TV2 Denmark or TV2 (DK) is perfect.
