In order to install Sumo on your site, all you need to do is make sure the Sumo installation code is installed within the <body> tags of your site’s source code.

This can be done by 1 manually pasting the installation script below into your site’s <body> tags, or 2 if your platform has a more direct integration such as an app or plugin, you can install the Sumo app or plugin instead.


1) Manually Install Sumo

1 Create your Sumo account and click the Sign Up button or sign in via Google!

Pro tip: If you already have a Sumo account, you can view your installation code by going to sumo.com/sites, then clicking the dropdown arrow next to "Manage" button and selecting View Install Code next to your site's URL.

3 Congrats! All you need to do is paste the Sumo code in between the <body> tags inside of the main page (usually a global header file) of your website, and you are good to go!
