How to Integrate Fathom Analytics into your AlterClass School

School analytics without compromise with Fathom

Gain valuable insights from your AlterClass school, all without spying on your visitors in just a few quick steps. Fathom is a Google Analytics alternative that doesn't compromise visitor privacy for data.

Use this integration to:

  • Get privacy-first website analytics
  • Get insights into visitor behavior
  • Learn where your students come from
  • Discover drop-off points and time spent on your school website
  • Track conversions

The Fathom Analytics integration is FREE for everyone.

Enable Fathom Analytics

Activating the Fathom Analytics integration with your AlterClass school is as easy as copy-pasting your Fathom Analytics Site ID.

1. Find your Fathom Site ID

Start by finding your Fathom Analytics Site ID.

  • Create a Fathom account if you haven't already
  • Add a new site or select the one you want to use with AlterClass from your settings
  • Copy your Site ID

If you want to take advantage of bypassing ad-blockers, you can also setup a custom domain.

From your site settings, click on Setup a custom domain.

Then add a custom domain, either by letting Fathom generates a "random" subdomain for you or by using a "specific" subdomain.

Finally, add the displayed DNS record with your domain registrar, and copy your custom domain.
