Setting up Real User Monitoring

Visitor insights collects all valuable data for finding performance issues with your site. Setting it up is easy, but it's also the only product in Pingdom where you have to make a change to your site. A really small one.

Here you'll see how easy it is to set up and get it working in Google Tag Manager:


1. Go to Visitor Insights in My Pingdom

Click on ‘Add Site‘ in the top right-hand corner.

2. Enter the site you want to monitor and get your snippet

If you plan to add a lot of sites, make sure you choose a name that explains it well. Our auto-suggestion will try to help you out!

3. Implement your code snippet

You can implement it directly into your site or through your tag management system, like Google Tag Manager. If you're implementing it directly, don't forget to do so right before the </body> tag of your site.

Within seconds you'll see your site visitor data appear in your Visitor Insights dashboard in My Pingdom.

It's that simple!

When the APM Integrated Experience is enabled, Pingdom shares a common navigation and enhanced feature set with the other integrated experiences' products.
