How To Track and Claim your Website with Google Web Tracking Code


If you own a website, and you have been running it well enough to get you traffic coming from various parts of the world, it's very important you set up a tracking means for this website, as it will help you monitor your website traffic health in terms of SEO, audience and others, and also serve as another way of Claiming you are actually the owner of the website.

 To do this, simply rush down to Google Analytics.
  • Sign In, and create Analytics ID by going to Admin >> New Account >> Add a Site, and fill in required details, once your through move to your blog, website.
  • Go to Template >> Edit HTML
 Find the </head> Copy and Paste the below web property code snippet just above the </head> tag.

<script type="text/javascript">   var _gaq = _gaq || [];   _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXX-Y']);   _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);   (function() {     var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;     ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '';     var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);   })(); </script>
Make sure you Replace the UA-XXXX-Y marked in red with your own web analytics ID by copying the web property from your Google analytics Admin Dashboard as in the screenshot below,


Also be sure your property code corresponds with the website URL you want to track, after replacing with your own, save your template.

Generally this should work perfectly for every website, not just on Blogger, where you only need to input your Web property ID.

If you had noticed, i recently did an overall change in this site's design, I was formally tracking it with those codes, but then I lost track after i made design changes, so i had to do the work over again, but this time, it was faster and a lot easier for me, just incase inputing your Web property doesn't work on your Blogger Settings, this should definitely be an instant solution.
