Thankfully, it’s super easy to add Google Analytics to Blogger. Since Blogspot is a Google company, they’ve made the process beyond simple.

How to Add Google Analytics to Blogspot


STEP 1: Sign Up for Google Analytics

  1. Go to the Google Analytics web page.
  2. Sign in using your Google account email. For Blogger.com, you can use the same email you use for your blog.
  3. You will need to Sign Up for an Analytics account.
  4. Under What would you like to track? choose Website.
  5. Select an Account Name.

  7. Choose an Industry Category that best fits your blog topic.
  8. Choose your time zone for accurate reports.
  9. Under Data Sharing Settings, read through what each option includes and select the options that best fit your situation. I generally leave them all checked.
  10. Click the Get Tracking ID button
  11. Accept the Terms of Service.
  12. You will be taken directly to your account dashboard and your Tracking ID will be prominently displayed on the page. This is the code you need to add to Blogger. Copy this code and hang onto it for Step 2.
