Adding a Google Analytics Feed to your Blogger

Techie notes (my apologies for the lack of pictures).

Step 1: Open a Google Analytics account. Having a Google account makes this step much easier.

Step 2: Click Add a Website Profile. This link is found in the Website Profiles header on the right side of the screen.

Step 3: Add your site's URL, your country, and your time zone. Click Finish

Step 4: You will be given a box with some Javascript to copy and paste into your blog code. I copied and pasted this into a Word document for safe keeping.

Step 5: Open a new window and log into your blogger account.

Step 6: (I am using Old Blogger), Go to Template > Edit Current

Step 7: Scroll to the bottom of the code. Paste the new code between /div and /body. It should look something like this:

Step 8 : Save the template.

Step 9: Go back to Google Analytics. You should see a message stating that Google Analytics is now receiving data.

I find that it takes about 24 hours to start receiving reports.

Hope this helps.
