Hi,
Do I have to put the Google Analytics code on each new blog post? Is there one singular place on the page that I can place the code?

Thanks!

Hello,
You can put the Google AdSense blocks on your main blog page and when a user clicks into each individual blog post the AdSense blocks will appear in the same position as the main blog page. Please let me know if this doesn't answer your question.

I think he is asking if we need to put the Analytics code on each new post..It creates a new URL for each posting I think?

Thanks John. Exactly.

I'm just curious if I can dump the Google Analytics code on the blog page -- and if that will be enough for google to distinguish each new post?

Or if each time I post a new blog post, I need to place the Analytics Code?

Cheers,
Joseph

After looking at my site I am not sure we can get to those pages in site builder...I hope that maybe it carries over to each new post/url as we create them

Hi Joseph,

I pasted the Analyics code into my blog page about 18 or 19 hours ago. I'm waiting to see what the outcome is. It looks as if by reports this is likely to be effective. We're hoping :)

(I have found out that Clicky is not effective for tracking searches within blog posts.)

Yup...it takes some time to get installed.But surely it will work out....I also implemented it successfully. You may check Google analytics code also for more help.

Hey guys... I'm sorry, I read the original question wrong and gave you an answer for Google AdSense not Analytics. But to give you the right answer, the Analytics code that you added to the main blog page will be on the individual blog posts as well.

Dear Emmy,

I have added the Google Analytics code at the bottom of my blog's page and Google can't seem to see it. The status column on my blog's profile shows that little yellow warning sign, implying that Google Analytics isn't detecting the code.

Well, according to Google's instructions the Analytics code block should be placed "immediately before" the page's tag, but when I paste the code into the HTML widget at the bottom of the page (following Yola's instructions) in Yola's editor, the code ends up someplace else, not far from the tag, but not "immediately before" it either. Am I doing anything wrong?

Thank you for your attention.

Hi Alex,

Did you add the code from Analytics using the HTML widget?

Hello Ruth! Yes, I did use the HTML widget. Well, it turns out my status column now shows tha green check sign. Apparently, it was just a matter of Google not updating the indicator quickly enough, or perhaps a lack of patience of mine. Google searches are very quick, after all, so why shouldn't this be as well, right? LOL. Thank you for your attention.

still confused, when you add google analytics one time, you never have to do it again?

Hi sender.co,
You need to add the Google Analytics to any page that you want to track. So on each of your pages, drag an HTML widget to the bottom of the page and paste in the same code. Hope that helps!
