Convertize can be used with almost any website, regardless of whether or not it is managed using a CMS (Content Management System). Here, we will explain how to install Convertize with any CMS.
To use Convertize on your website, you need to install the Convertize Pixel. This Pixel is nothing more than a small line of code that you need to copy and paste into the source code of your website.
Installing the Convertize Pixel is simple and only takes a couple of minutes. The only requirement is access to your website’s code.
To install the Pixel, follow these steps.
When you first create your Convertize account, the Pixel is given at the very beginning of the process, in Create.
After you have created your first Experiment, you can find your Pixel back in the settings of your Project. Go to the My Projects tab > select the Project you created > click “Settings” in the top right corner > find your Pixel in the Tracking Pixel tab.
Copy the Pixel from the text-box.
Note that each Project has its own, unique Pixel. If you have created more than one Project, make sure to select the one you want to find the Pixel for.
Now you need to paste the Convertize Pixel into the head element (before the closing tag
</head>) of your website. If you only wish to use Convertize on specific pages, you can also paste the Pixel into the head element of these pages only.
In the example below, you can insert the Convertize Pixel on line #14 located just above the closing tag
If you use one of the following tools, you can avoid touching opening your source code. Read here where to paste the Pixel Convertize if you use:

If the Pixel has not been installed correctly, you will see the following message on the checklist:
