HitTail Destination

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

Getting Started

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

  • Our CDN is updated within 5-10 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

📱 Device-based
☁️ Cloud-based

To learn more about about Connection Modes and what dictates which we support, see here.


Segment lets you change these destination settings via 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.
