How Do I Add the Google Analytics Code to My Blog?

Previously we took a look at how to set up a Google account and retrieve your Google Analytics code. If you have not done so yet, watch this video, grab your code, and then join us back here.

You saved your code to a notepad file, right? BTW – be sure to save that file on your hard drive or expansion drive not simply on your desktop. Those desktop files are basically temporary as they are not backed up when you back up your hard drives.

Now that you’re ready, let’s take a look at placing that code within your blog so that Google can track your visitor stats and you can then learn more about your visitors. Follow along with this step by step video tutorial and if you have any questions, please drop me a line. I’d suggest you click the square in the lower right corner to view the video in a larger window.

How did you do? Did the tutorial help you add your analytics code to your blog/website? I’d love to hear your comments.

  1. Hi Marilyn,
    I was meditating this morning when it hit me that I never checked out this blog — working on this Kindle book for this challenge has really taken over all of my brain cells. LOL. Thanks for this installment. It was easy to do. I look forward to the final piece of the puzzle on how to check out the stats on the Google site.

  2. I used analytics a few years back. Somehow, it got taken off my sites and when I tried to get back in to my account to get it all straightened out, it was a mess in there.
    I have to figure out how to straighten it out, or clear it out and start over.

  3. Thanks to Google Analytics, I know which pages of my website are more popular and need additional content!

    This is a great feature to install and I encourage online entrepreneurs to use it to the fullest potential!

    Great video! Thanks!

    • Indeed Bonnie, it’s not just about tracking traffic stats, it’s also about knowing where those visitors go on your site. Thanks for the kind words.

  4. You can also do this with a Google Analytics website widget but I found it much easier to just paste the code directly into my theme. Thanks for the video!
