Where should the analytics tracking code be placed in the HTML of a webpage for data collection?

The analytics tracking code should typically be placed in the <head> section of your HTML document.

Here is the structure:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<!-- Other meta tags, CSS links, and script tags may be present here -- >

<!-- Analytics tracking code goes here -- >
// Paste your analytics tracking code here
<!-- The rest of your HTML content goes here -- >
