{
    resolve: `gatsby-plugin-google-analytics`,
    options: {
      // Here goes your tracking ID
      trackingId: 'UA-XXXX-Y',
      // Puts tracking script in the head instead of the body
      head: true,
      // IP anonymization for GDPR compliance
      anonymize: true,
      // Disable analytics for users with `Do Not Track` enabled
      respectDNT: true,
      // Avoids sending pageview hits from custom paths
      exclude: ['/preview/**'],
      // Specifies what percentage of users should be tracked
      sampleRate: 100,
      // Determines how often site speed tracking beacons will be sent
      siteSpeedSampleRate: 10,
    },
},

 siteMetadata: {
