Wouldn't it be nice to know how many people actually visited your blog each day? How about knowing which of your posts are the most popular? Well surprisingly Blogger doesn't currently offer any native blog analytics but fortunately there is Google Analytics Available for free.
Google Analytics is a great tool that will show you all sorts of useful information about how people found your blog, keywords they searched on to find you, where they came from and even how long they stayed. You'll learn more about where your visitors come from and how they interact with your blog. This is a must tool if you are trying to build a profitable blog otherwise you are flying blind!
This article will show you how to add Google Analytics to your Blogger blog. It's a fairly simple process and doesn't require any technical skill at all.
1. Go to Google Analytics and Sign Up using your Blogger login.
Click on the "Sign Up" button and proceed to the next step which will ask you for your general information. Account Name, Website URL, and Time Zone. fill all required information and Accept "Terms and Conditions". The Screen will look like this:
Account Name: More preferably it will be the Profile Name, such as, My blogs.
Website's URL: Enter your site's URL, example, example.blogspot.com or www.example.com
Time Zone: Select your Country only.
User Agreement: Select YES and Click Create Account.
2. On next page you will be given the Analytics Script Under Tracking Code tab.
This is the code you will need to copy and paste into your blogger template. Go ahead and click into the box and it will automatically highlight the entire block of code for you.
