Create Custom Meta Tags

Use custom meta tags to store data that you need in javascript, instead of hard-coding that data into your javascript. I store my Google Analytics code in meta tags. Here's some examples:

<meta name="google-analytics" content="1-AHFKALJ"/>
<meta name="disqus" content="abcdefg"/>
<meta name="uservoice" content="asdfasdf"/>
<meta name="mixpanel" content="asdfasdf"/>
