Alexa Destination

Segment makes it easy to send your data to Alexa (and lots of other destinations). Once you've tracked your data through our open source libraries we'll translate and route your data to Alexa in the format they understand. Learn more about how to use Alexa with Segment.

Our Alexa destination code is open-source on GitHub if you want to check it out.

Troubleshooting

Alexa could not find the Certify Code

Alexa’s installation detector does not actually execute javascript on the page (our analytics.js javascript needs to run to insert their javascript). Instead, its detector looks for the snippet/image tag directly and therefore, misses the detection.
