How do I put Google Analytic Code in WP blog

Discussion in 'Traffic Analysis' started by bikerbanjara, Jun 4, 2013.

    HI
    I have a WP blog on wordpress.com

    I want to set up google analytic to monitor traffic to my website. However I searched the web about ways of putting code on wordpress blog. Everyone there had suggested to put the code in my wp theme's footer.php
    SEMrush
    however I have selected truly minimal theme for my blog and when i go to see its css, a css edit opens with nothing written there. I tried to search how to locate the footer.php but couldnt find it.

    can any one please guide me how to install google analytic code to my blog.

    Ajay

    I would say try the plugin "Add-Meta-Tags plugin"

    But you are likely using one of the other SEO plugins like Yoast, or All In One or SEO ultimate yes?

    Not ideal though.

    You can't add Google Analytics to WordPress.com blog. Because wp.com users have no FTP access, and cannot install plugins. This is a feature requested by wp.com users for a long time, but they haven't added it yet.

    As of now you will have to use the stats provided by WordPress.com. Yes, I know its features are not even close to Google Analytics. But there are no other options.

    You can use some plugin or can put it somewhere in header/footer file. Make sure to include it before body tag ends.

    This post is about a WordPress.com blog, you won't get access to header and footer files in a WordPress.COM blog. The plugin and theme editings are possible in WordPress.ORG :)
