Everytime I need to add another website to my Google Analytics account I need to Google how to do it, so I thought this time I would take note of the process so that it is at my fingertips.
How to add get the site set up in Google Analytics

2./ Click on the Admin link
3./ Select the property drop down list and there it is hidden away – click on Create New Property
How to add the code to your website
If you have WordPress you can use a plugin. The one I use is called Google Analytics for WordPress. You can just go to add plugins, install it and then authenticate via your Google account within the settings – or you can manually enter the code. It really is that simple.
If you have your own website you will need to paste the snippet of code from Google Analytics just before the tag on every page that you want to track. Hopefully you have a header file, so only have to put it on that one file.
Any questions ask away.
