- Start using Google Analytics
Now, head over to http://google.com/analytics/
If you are new to Analytics well then you click the “Sign up now” on your right.
Otherwise you log in and add a new profile.
These steps are rather straight forward, just answer the questions (IF you find something unclear, please post a comment and I’ll add this to the instruction).
- Collect your tracking code
- Get that code into Blogger
Go to www.blogger.com (don’t you just love Tabs?:-)
Sign in and choose the blogg that you want to track.
Click on the tag “Template”.
Scroll down to the end of the code in the html box and paste your Tracking Code just before the ending tags so it looks something like this:
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-xxxxxx-x"); pageTracker._initData(); pageTracker._trackPageview();
Save your template changes and choose Republish
- Was it tricky? Check your status!
In Google Analytics your “Status” tells you wither or not you succeeded.
It should now say Receiving data and not be a big warning sign :)
If it is still a yellow sign saying Tracking unknown or Tracking not installed, well my instructions was a big fail. Give me a slap on the fingers and I’ll update the instructions so others won’t have to make the same mistake.
