      Hi Mustafa, Have you signed up in google analytics? If you have not done yet, first do it here Then When you finish last step, it will give you one code. Just copy and paste the code in header.php. In header.php, you have to paste the code between <head and <title lines…

      If you use thesis theme, you can just paste the code in "Header Scripts" in "Thesis Options".

When I first started this job just over a month ago, I read an article written by someone else at the company I work for on Google Analytics and helped me alot too –
