Changing Site Speed Sample Rate 0 Recommended Answers 5 Replies 2 Upvotes

I have an account with Google Analytics and have linked it with Monster Insights on our web site.  As far as I can tell, everything is installed and running correctly.  My problem is that I am not seeing any page load timing statistics.  We don't get much traffic and I'm pretty sure it's because the Site Speed Sampling Rate is at the default 1%.  The instructions on how to set it to a higher value are very confusing...for example:

All you need to do is, Add the below code snippet to Universal Analytics Code. Which might reside in the header file if the website if you have directly linked Google Analytics with your website. Or in the Page Load GTM Tag, if you are using Google Tag Manager.
ga(‘create’, ‘UA-XXXX- Y’, {‘siteSpeedSampleRate’: 100});
‘UA-XXXX- Y’ – Replace this with your Google Analytics Tracking ID

I have GTM installed, but cannot find a Page Load GTM Tag.  I also have no idea what 'header file' this is referring to.

Thank you for replying...what is the path in GTM to get to the area shown in your example?  It looks to be somewhere in GTM Workspace Variables, but I can't find it.

So I have created the tag and set it up as suggested above, to change the sitespeedsamplerate to 100%.  I also set it to trigger on Page View.  Clearly I'm missing something because I am still not seeing any page timing statistics.
