Design

Previously, there was no specific function for footer. So you had to copy a bunch of blocks at the bottom of every page of your website. This tip allowed to create a “manual” footer. There were several problems with this tip:
  • You had to manually change the position of all blocks when adding content to the page (to push them downward)
  • If you wanted to modify a block in the footer, you had to adjust the position of all duplicated blocks, on every page.
  • The footer was not optimized for mobiles
If you have used this process for your footer, here is a tutorial to move your manual footer into the new footer system:
  • Go to one of the pages containing all the blocks of your footer (or go to the background page if you had created a manual footer in the background)
  • Select all the blocks of the footer
  • Right click and select “Add to footer”. The blocks will automatically move to the new footer, and will remain at their locations
  • On each one of the other pages, select all the footer blocks, and delete them
Finally, you may have set a different Menu block for all footers. If you want this menu (which is now in your new footer) to be properly displayed on all pages, you will have to re-configure it.
  • Modify your Menu block by checking all your website pages
  • Delete the old Menu blocks

Add graphics to your website using our various blocks. You will be able to add custom shapes with the Box block (rectangle, round, tooltip, stars...)

⚠️ Be sure to vary the content according to the pages to ensure the good indexing of each page.

Statistics

Les plateformes de publicité en ligne telle que Google Ads permettent de suivre le nombre et le montant des conversions (ventes) de votre boutique SiteW, et d'optimiser vos affichages publicitaires en fonction de leurs retombés. Pour cela, vous devez créer et ajouter un code de suivi.

Google Tag Manager n'est pas utilisable pour cet usage.

Dans Google Ads vous devez d'abord créer un code de suivi :

  1. Rendez-vous dans Outils et paramètres > Conversions > Nouvelle > Site Web > Indiquez l'URL de votre site > Ajouter une action de conversion manuellement
  2. Indiquez les valeurs de configuration suivante : Objectif : Achat, Valeur : Différente pour chaque conversion
  3. Confirmez et enregistrez

Ensuite la plateforme vous donne 1 ou 2 codes :

  1. Un code global à ajouter à toutes les pages, généralement dans la section <head>.  Pour Google Ads, il s'agit du global site tag.
    Vous devez insérer ce code dans un module widget HTML (mode intégration directe) de la page Arrière plan avec l'option Intégration directe d'activée.
    Exemple Google Ads 2022 :
    <!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Ads: 39XXXXXX-->
    <script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=AW-XXXXXXX"></script>
    <script>
      window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
      function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
      gtag('js', new Date());

      gtag('config', 'AW-39XXXXXXXXX');
    </script>
  2. Un code d'événement à indiquer sur la page de confirmation de paiement. Pour Google Ads, il s'agit du tag d'événement.
    Copier le tag d'événement de conversion et modifier s'il est présent, le montant de la conversion (1.0 pour Google Ads) par TOTAL puis collez-le dans la configuration du module boutique Méthodes de paiement > Code de suivi de conversion

    Exemple Google Ads 2022 :
    <!-- Event snippet for Achat conversion page -->
    <script>
      gtag('event', 'conversion', {
        'send_to': 'AW-39XXXXXX/mTXXXXXXB',
        'value': TOTAL,
        'currency': 'EUR',
        'transaction_id': ''
      });
    </script>

Enfin, il est possible que la plateforme vous indique que le code est absent ou mal configuré tant qu'aucune conversion n'a eu lieu.
