Google Analytics has a document with server-side code snippets in several languages.

If I understood this correctly, you want to have all visits to the site redirected to the domain (not the www subdomain), but you have the GA code set up to track the www subdomain. I think the best way to do it is edit the settings in GA to point to example.com. When you go to GA, you should have two links in the right of the account name, edit and delete. ...

The Short is answer is: Sort of... The long answer is they track things partially, and not completely accurately. They can see who's visiting your site from Google search results.
