How to Integrate Google Analytics with Blogger

Google Analytics shows measurement of your website's hit or page views. It gauges your audience's engagement with your blog or website according to the times they view your page. You will also see your blogger blog's unique views (count of every single person viewing) unlike Blogger's builtin Stats counter which just sums all the views regardless of the number of people viewing. Google Analytics even lets you integrate various web analytics tools like Google Adsense's analytics if you want to track your earnings according to page views and other parameters.

Without further ado, here's how you connect Google Analytics with Blogger.

If you don't have a Google Analytics account yet, then create one.

Go to Google Analytics' website.

Click on "Sign In" and on the dropdown menu, "Google Analytics".
