Once you’ve signed up you need to install the Analytics code on each page of your site. If you’re using a blog platform like WordPress you simply add this code into the footer.php file of your WordPress theme. For example if you are using the ‘Default’ theme then you would navigate to /wp-content/themes/default. Then open the footer.php file and add the Google analytics code just about the lt;/bodygt; tag.
If you are using a static html site then you will have to add the code to each page that you wish to track. Again, add the code just above the lt;/bodygt; tag for each page.
The Google analytics code looks much like the code below, with your own unique tracking number:
_uacct = â€œUA-123456-7?;
The great thing about Google analytics is it’s 100% free and is much more detailed in tracking than any paid services I have ever found.
