How to add Google Analytics Code to your Blogspot or Wordpress Blog

Google Analytics would have to be the best free web traffic analysis tool that is available, in fact I would wager that its better than most paid web traffic analysis tools.

I have been using Analytics now for around one year, I like the way you can get a quick overview of your site just by choosing the site, I am also very impressed with the comparison feature where you can graph one time period against another.

Once you have registered with Google Analytics you need to add your site into the Analytics Settings, you will be then given a small snippet of code that needs to be placed onto every page of your website. Luckily for us bloggers it only means editing one file.

Warning: Please backup your template first in case you muck it up.

How to insert the Google Analytics code into Blogspot Blogs.

1./ Go into Template, then Edit HTML

2./ Scroll right to the bottom and paste your snippet of code just above the < /body > tag. Save the file and you are done.


How to add your code to Wordpress

1./ Head to presentation theme editor

2./ Edit the footer.php of the relevant theme and paste the code just above the < /body > tag as below. Save the file and that's it.


It takes a day or so for the Data to be available, however its certainly comprehensive once it arrives. If you have any questions feel free to ask them.

awww jesse, sounds like you are having a bad run there. I guess things can only get better from here!

Glad to hear you are going to keep at it, I was talking to another blogger today and the topic about persistence came up. It certainly seems to be half the battle anyway.
