    Great tutorial for newbie website builders as I’m :-) Btw, I do have a question: is this your tutorial also available to install on blogs? Thanks!

      Yes, you can install Google Analytics on blogs, but I would recommend just downloading and installing a plugin specifically for Google Analytics especially if you are using WordPress….much easier.
