Thus if you have a gmail account , you can very easily access Google Analytics by simply logging into Google with your gmail account .

Add the blog address to Google Analytics

The next step is to add the address of your blog into your Google Analytics account , so that Google Analytics starts tracking the traffic to your blog . For this , please click on the ‘ Admin ‘ button on your Google Analytics Home Page .


Then click on the ‘ Account ‘ button ; you will find the button called ‘ Create New Account ‘ .  Here , 4 other websites are already seemed to be updated for tracking  ; hence all these appear in the ‘ Accounts ‘ . In Google Analytics , you can track upto 100 websites .

Let’s say you name this account as ‘ Digital Nerd ‘ . Please add the Account Name in the space provided . Then you have to ‘ Set up your property ‘ i.e. add the website name , website url , industry category and time zone as shown .


Thus you add the website name ‘ ‘ , the url name , the Industry Category as ‘ Computers and Electronics ‘ and the time zone as India .

After updating this data , you have to select various options regarding sharing your data with google . Information about various options is given in detail and you can select whichever options you agree with . At the bottom , there is a blue – coloured button called as the ‘ Get Tracking id ‘ . You have to click on this button as shown below .tracking id

 Update Google Analytics tracking id in the Blogger Account

Blogger is also a Google product . Therefore , you can access Blogger in the similar way as you can access Google Analytics . Here we assumed that you already have a blogger account and have created property , ie have a Blog address and have created a title in blogger .

So now you have to update the Google analytics tracking id for the blog post that you created above in the Blogger account .

When you sign in your blogger account , you will land on the page shown below . Click on the ‘ Settings ‘ button which is encircled in blue .

It takes some time ( approx 24 hours ) for the Google Analytics and the Blogger accounts to synchronise .  Since Blogger and Google Analytics are both are Google products , this synchronisation is quite easy . This completes the connection of Google Analytics with Blogger .

Why Google Analytics ?

Incidentally , Blogger also has a traffic tracking feature called as ‘ Stats ‘ . This also gives various traffic data . Then the question may arise that when Blogger can also give traffic data , why add Google Analytics to Blogger ? The primary reason for this is that Blogger data and Google Analytics data do not match with the former giving inflated data . In short , Google Analytics is considered to be a more reliable web traffic tool and it also has many more features than the ‘ Stats ‘ .
