Google Analytics

Hi

Google has just released the former Urchin analytics program as a free program which is used by many large corporations. Great program. Forget having to pay hundreds of dollars for a web analytics solution. Get it free.

On that topic...

I was wondering if a plugin for Google Analytics is available. There are quite a number of plugins available for Wordpress already.

Anyone got one they want to share?

You only have to put the Google Analytics Javascript in header.thtml, just behind the metatags, thats it.

thanks for the quick reply!

i know the analytics can take a day or so but google validates that the code is detected correctly during setup and it does not detect it in my geeklog site.

i did a second site that is not geeklog and it validated immediately.
here is my header.thtml:

urchinTracker();

    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src = '{layout_url}/images/navbar/' +a[i];}}

I just inserted it just before the </body> tag in my footer.thtml file and it did the trick!
