Add the mPulse snippet to your pages manually

If Akamai does not deliver your traffic, manually tag your site’s pages at the origin with the mPulse JavaScript snippet.

Before you begin

Before you start, make sure that your mPulse app configuration is open to the General tab (see Create an mPulse app).

How to

  1. On the General tab, to the right of the API key, select the Show JavaScript checkbox to view the mPulse snippet.
    The JavaScript code that you see in the in dialog is the mPulse snippet. The snippet includes the boomerang code and your unique 25-character API key that mPulse uses to identify your site's beacons. The API key value is enclosed in double quotation marks near the bottom of the snippet.
  2. Using the HTML <script> tag, place the snippet in the HTML document as close to the opening <HEAD> statement as possible, but after any position-sensitive META tags so the boomerang library loads before the browsers onload event fires.
  3. Click Cancel to close the Configure Your App dialog.
    After you tag your site correctly, it’ll be several minutes before mPulse receives your data beacons. While you wait, explore mPulse and remember to check out a few of the dashboards. They’ll show you how to use mPulse to see your performance in real time.

Next steps

Once mPulse receives your data beacons and you’ve had a chance to get familiar with the product, add some customization to your web app configuration for more in-depth analysis on your site.
