We regularly update our documentation when we make changes to Hotjar, but sometimes third-party tools might make changes we're not aware of. In the case of Hubspot, you might find it useful to refer to their guide to adding to snippets to the head of your page, if you encounter any difficulties.
Go to the Marketing > Website > Pages section of Hubspot.
Click the gear icon in the top right-hand corner.
In the Modifying dropdown, select a Specific domain or select All domains.
Go to Hotjar.com to copy the Tracking Code from the Hotjar admin.
Paste the Hotjar Tracking Code in the Site header HTML section
If you haven't specified any particular header and footer for any of your subdomains, you can put the Hotjar tracking code under the default for all domains option.
If you have already specified a specific header and footer for your subdomain, select that domain from the drop down and paste the Hotjar Tracking Code in the header section for it.
Click Save at the bottom left.
Your Hotjar Tracking Code is now installed.
Once you have added the Hotjar Tracking Code on your site, you will need to wait a few minutes for Hotjar to check if it is installed correctly. This usually happens the moment your site is loaded with the Hotjar Tracking Code on it (you can visit the page yourself to speed it up). Once Hotjar has detected the Tracking Code on your site, the Site Dashboard will show a notice like the one below:
Keep Tracking Code in mind when making design changes
If after you install the Tracking Code, your website undergoes a major design change check to ensure your Tracking Code is still installed.
