DAP Learning Series

The YouTube Event Option

Learn how to track plays of embedded YouTube videos on your DAP-enabled pages

Wednesday, February 19, 2020 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

Hosted by Digital Analytics Program (DAP) and Digital.gov

DAP has long given web managers the option to track YouTube embeds on their pages, but it’s not always used. We’ll show you how to turn YouTube video tracking on (it’s very easy!). We’ll also show how the data can be used to analyze how long people watch the videos on your pages.
