Adding Google Analytics to your Blog
Google analytics is the best way to track visitors to your blog and get a deeper understanding of your audience. It is the most reliable source of information and can be used to understand what type of content your audience likes, how well you are ranking on Google, and even where your audience is coming from. It is something I recommend everyone to install as soon as they get their blogs set up!
