Fill up the form and get the tracking code.

  1. Goto blogger.com and choose Template from left menu.

  2. Click on Edit HTML , a new page open.

  3. Search for &lt;/head&gt; and paste the tracking snippets above the &lt;/head&gt; section.


There are another method you can use by just using your tracking id which looks like "UA-00000-1".

The biggest dis-advantage that if you're using custom template the tracking Id not included. So the first method is safe.

But here is the code you can add to your custom template &lt;/head&gt; section. [[Code here]]

Step #1: Goto blogger and head over to Setting from left menu.

Step #2: From the dropdown menu click on "others" and a new page will open.

Step #3: Find "Google analytics Id" located in the bottom of the page and put your tracking ID there. And save the page.

Now give your blog 7 day, after this you can see your sites each metrics.

What to Measure on your blog ?



There are many advantages of Google analytics you can think of. Event tracking, sales funels, goals.

Event tracking: Basically it is a tracker which track clicks of buttons, images, links.

Funels: Funels are basically step-by-step goals. For example:

  • Subscribe-page &gt;&gt; Check-out page&gt;&gt;Payment-confirm page &gt;&gt; Thank you page.


The main diffrence from single goals you can measure how many visitors are converting/abandoing your site.

Goals: Let me give you an example, think your reader subscribe to your blog and after clicking on confirmation link your readers land on thank you page. So your reader complete a goal.

What to do Next ?

Goto your google analytics account and add it to your blog. Then setup some goals you can start measure now.
