How To Install Google Analytics Property In Blogger

2 comments




After starting the blog with either blogger or WordPress, you start publishing quality content to increase website traffic. At time you really don't care for website analysis right. At time you just concern with the daily no. of page views and no. of unique visitor. Even I had same thinking, when I had started my blog. But trust me this is not the only thing you need to take care off. To increase traffic, its time to track the traffic statistics. Its time to track new users per minute, no. of sessions happens, sessions by browser, Avg. session duration and pages / session, Bounce Rate, Revenue, Goal Completions, Real time traffic and much more.

Don't panic these all things comes in one tools called Google Analytics. well, GA is a free tool offered by google itself to analytics or track the above mentioned things easily.


GA also provides the facilities like Dashboards, Shortcuts, Intelligence Events, Real-time, Audience, Behavior, etc. It will also help you to link your blog or website with google adsense or google webmaster tools. I think its pretty clear now why tracking traffic statistics is important and how Google analytics will help you in getting it. So, lets quickly install google analytics with your blog.


Create Google Analytics Account

As I said its good to link your Google Analytics with Google webmaster tools. So, why not to go in that manner. If you haven't added your site to Google, then first add it. Below mentioned post will help you in adding your site to google webmaster tools.

If you have already added your site then,

Step 2 :- Go to Manage Site >> Google Analytic Property.
You will find it below ADD A SITE button or on the right hand side of you blog title.



Step 3 :- Click on Create Google Analytics account.
Now you will be redirected to google analytics login page.



Step 4 :- If you do not want to link your blog with google webmaster tools (not recommendable). Simply skip above 3 steps and login to Google Analytics (below steps will be same for both the methods).
You need google account to login in google analytics. Sign in with your google or gmail account and click on sign up.



Step 5 :- Fill the form and create analytics property.
Now, you will be redirected to next page, where you have to enter few details regarding your blog like blog url, blog title, country etc. Enter the details and click on Get Tracking ID button. See the snap shot below.
