How do I update Leadfeeder if my website changes?

If you have a shiny new website, a new company name, or maybe you changed your name and want it right in the account. If you want to keep your Leadfeeder account up to date and running follow these steps. 

Step One: Check out your settings.

You can change all of the details you need to under different options in your settings.

Step Two: Change your user (personal) details:
Click on 'Your settings' under the main navigation, or if you are already in the settings area of Leadfeeder click on the 'Personal' tab.

Update your name, email, password, and make sure you are signed up for our newsletter! Be sure to click save!

All of the options under personal are yours. If you need API keys, to update your notifications, or to connect LinkedIn Sales Navigator Team Edition you can find all of those options here.

Step Three: Change your company details:
Click on 'Your settings' under the main navigation, or if you are already in the settings area of Leadfeeder click on the 'Company' tab.

Here you can update your company name and other tool details. Make any edits you need and don't forget to click save! Everything under the 'company' menu applies to your entire Leadfeeder account.

Step Four: Change your website details:
Click on 'Your settings' under the main navigation, or if you are already in the settings area of Leadfeeder click on the 'Website' tab. You will see 'Tracker traffic rules' under this menu as well, you will revisit this.

Here you can update your website name and how pages are displayed. Make any edits you need and don't forget to click save! If you need to check or update a site connection you will want to visit your 'views'. 

Everything under the 'website' menu applies to your entire Leadfeeder account.

Step Five: Install Leadfeeder Tracker on your new site.
Click on 'Your settings' under the main navigation, or if you are already in the settings area of Leadfeeder click back on the 'Company' tab. Navigate to 'Leadfeeder Tracker'.

Here you can find your Leadfeeder Tracker script. If you have published a completely new site you must make sure the Tracker script is on the new site (this article can help you check). 

If you have had a more subtle change, for example, a domain change, or hosting change you may not need to reinstall your script. Check to see if it is on the site first. If it is, you don't need to worry about re-installing it. 

Step Six: Check your traffic rules.
Click on 'Your settings' under the main navigation, or if you are already in the settings area of Leadfeeder click back on the 'Website' tab. Navigate to 'Tracker traffic rules'.

If you have changed your domain name or URL you will want to check and possibly update your traffic rules even if you did not need to re-install the script. Make sure that your new hostname is listed properly and remove any unneeded hostnames. 

As always, be sure to save!

Step Seven: Check your Google Analytics views.
Click on 'Your settings' under the main navigation, or if you are already in the settings area of Leadfeeder click back on the 'Website' tab. Navigate to 'Google Analytics views'.

Here you can check if you have your current Google Analytics view connected (don't worry- yours won't be blurry). Detach any unneeded views, or reconnect if your switch disconnected your view. 

If you have a new Google Analytics view on your site you will want to add it here. This article can tell you how.

Step Eight: Check out your custom feeds and automation.
Go back to your main Leadfeeder Leads Page and check for custom feeds or automation that may be impacted by changes in your URLs or domain name.

Look for any custom feeds that may include an old domain or URL structure that has changed. Simply click on the feed, check the filters, and click edit to make changes. Don't forget to save it!

Not every step here may apply to the changes you need to make. As they tell you in yoga, take what you need and leave the rest behind.

As always if you need help please reach out! Contact us via live chat or email to support@leadfeeder.com

IMPORTANT!: Changing the name of the website alone won't update or change the connection to your actual site- this will change the display name only. Be sure to check all the steps for what may apply to you!
