HitTail Destination

On this page

Getting Started

When you toggle on HitTail in Segment, this is what happens:

  • Our CDN is updated within 45 minutes. Then our snippet will start asynchronously loading hittail.js onto your page. This means you should remove HitTail’s snippet from your page.
  • HitTail will automatically start recording search keywords and showing them on its dashboard.

HitTail does not track any other forms of data, so none of the rest of our API is supported.

Supported Sources and Connection Modes

The first step is to make sure HitTail supports the source type and connection mode you’ve chosen to implement. You can learn more about what dictates the connection modes we support here.

Web Mobile Server
📱 Device-mode
☁️ Cloud-mode

Segment lets you change these destination settings from your Segment dashboard without having to touch any code.

Site ID

You can find your Site ID on Sites tab (click view for details) of your HitTail account. It should be a series of numbers, like 99213.
