    You need to publish the line of code on every page of which you wish to monitor the performances. It is also explained on google webmaster’s website since it is not sure that a visitor reach your website form index or home page every time, especially if it is a returning visitor that goes directly to a bookmarked page or type the content page he desire.

      Do you know what platform your website is running (HTML template, WordPress, Joomla, MyBB etc)? This article would generally apply to a HTML template, depending on what platform (if any) your website is running, you could look for a relevant module/plugin.
