Blogger, WordPress: Google Analytics for your blog

Just a heads up for those who’ve not seen it – there’s a good summary post on the Google Analytics Blog about how to install Analytics on WordPress and Blogger, with links to howto tutorials etc. And indeed why it’s useful to measure statistics / metrics for your blog using web analytics.

If you’ve not installed code on your blog to track the number of your visitors (with charts / graphs etc), which pages are most popular etc, I’d advise you should do so as soon as possible. Unless you really don’t care, of course! But it’s interesting viewing even if you don’t.

I’ll be doing a more detailed post in future about how to do certain useful things like check visitors to a specific webpage, figure out who’s sending visitors your way when you’ve experienced a sudden increase in visitor numbers, etc.
