I wrote previously about How to add google analytics to your wordpress blog and How to add google analytics to your blogger/ blogspot blog, describing how to add the analytics code to your templates directly. There are actually easier ways to achieve this, sorry, for coming up with this so late. This post describes only how to insert the google analytics code, for the rest, how to get it, etc, please refer to the two posts mentioned above. So here you go, some other, easier ways to insert the google urchin code into your blogs.
For Google Blogger / Blogspot Blogs
This refers only to the ‘new’ blogger templates, not to the classic ones. Are there still some of those around?
For self hosted WordPress Blogs
You will need a customizable theme like Atahualpa, the theme I am using for this blog. In your theme options click “HTML/CSS Inserts” and scroll down to “HTML Inserts: Body Bottom”, copy and paste the Google code in the box, save, done.
If you don’t have a full y customizable theme like Atahualpa, you can either use the method described in my first post How to add google analytics to your wordpress blog or use a wordpress plugin like Google Analyticator.
OK, I hope that covers nicely the task of adding Google Analytics to the two main blogging platforms, wordpress and blogger blogspot. Any more questions, suggestions or complaints that I forgot, again, something? Just leave them in a comment 😉
