Implementing Quantcast Measure with WordPress

Important note before you begin:

  • If using wordpress.com to host your website, you cannot use the Quantcast Measure functionality.
  • If using wordpress.org and hosting the website on a different platform, you can use the Quantcast Measure functionality by following the instructions below.

 

We have a WordPress plugin that makes implementing the Quantcast Measure tag on your WordPress site simple and easy.

Here are the steps:

1. Go here and copy your p-code: You generated this code when you went through the process of signing up for Quantcast Measure. Keep your p-code close at hand. You’ll need it later.

It’s important to note that it will take 1-2 days before basic audience data populates in your Quantcast Measure account and 4-6 days until deeper audience insights show up. Moving forward, all you have to do to view your audience data is log in to your Quantcast Measure account.
