I am trying to find the code to enter into the header code so that it will show up on search engines. I know there is code that can be added in, but I am unable to find this aside from the code to add in for google ads to show up on my page.

Good instructions too. There are only a couple of qualified SEO experts here. John is one.
Won't this just let me track it? I would just like to have it show somewhere eventually on search engines. My boss is not okay with paying for this sadly though, so google adwords wont work for this company.
You can track visits, users, etc to the website from the tracking code provided from Google With Google Analytic. AdWords is another thing. Using separate code. Then there is tag manager it is more of an all in one tracking code...for retargeting, AdWords, and other stuff. Many companies that manage large accounts use the tag manager. In house Google Analytics is indispensable.

Marketing is a completly different field than web design. There is a lot more to know. Marketing usually dictates to design a goal. Good design trys to deliver. Google Analytics and other tracking companies help bridge that gap to keep it honest. For example you will see the cruel result of “slow page“ loads being abandoned right quick. You can see the depth of the visit...how far into your site users are going and how engaged they are.
The individual embed codes are generated from your Google AdWords account. There is no generic "one fits all code". If you are a member of the AdWords program, the options will be avialable on your Google webmaster dashboard and can be configured in a million ways from which the individual code snippets then will be generated.
Thank you guys I appreciate it.
