How to Track your blog's traffic ?

Advertisements

So you have setup a blog at Blogger successfully and also have started getting good traffic.

Now you want to track the visitors of your blog and thinking of adding a Tracker.

It's always good to track your visitors,so that you can know what is the source of your traffic.If it's from search engines what are the keywords for which you are getting more traffic.

The Best Free Tracker I think is "Google Analytics".

It keeps a complete track of the visitors of your blog like source,referring sites, region/country,keyword,etc.

Here is a step-by-step guide for how to add Google Analytics to your Blogger Blog.-

  1. Just login to your account at Google Analyitcs.
  2. Click on Add Website Profile.
  3. Enter the URL of your blog and your country.
  4. Now you will get a java code for tracking your blog.
  5. Now login to you Blogger account > Layout > Edit HTML.
  6. Scroll to the bottom, and paste it just above the closing body tag.
  7. That's it you have added successfully a Google Analytics code to your blog, click the finish button and wait for few minutes for Google to find that code and it will start tracking your blog's visitors.
Google Analytics reports your visitors usually the next day,like on 9th you will get to see report of your blog's visitors on 8th.

But still it's the best,because it's the standard of all.

What if your blog doesn't have a body code? I even tried adding one in and then got an error message.

Kendall, nice name. Actually I am reading MORNING, NOON, NIGHT by Shidny Sheldon. And there is a Kendall - fashion designer.

Well you have to add Analytics code as follows.

Go to Blogger Dashboard and go to Design >> Edit HTML and click on Expand Widget Templates.
Now press CTRL+F from your keyboard and look for
</body>

Now add Analytic code before </body> and save the template.
