Traffic is vital to the overall success of your blog, but most of you may be wondering; “How do I measure the traffic stats of my blog on SportsRantz?“. Glad you asked!

There actually has been a feature on SportsRantz for quite some time that allows you to setup Google Analytics and track your blog’s traffic. Don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, with so many features on SportsRantz it can be easy to lose track of some things in the shuffle.

So how do you setup traffic stats on your site? Luckily, we made this fairly easy to do in the following steps outlined below.

#1 – Create a Google Analytics Account

 

First things first, you have to have an Analytics account to configure. But this is actually quite easy, just head on over to http://www.google.com/analytics/

Once you have entered your website information you will be directed to a page that will have a Tracking ID it will most likely resemble this:
UA-32950914-1

 

#2 – Adding Analytics to your Blog

 

Once you have that all setup go to your blog Dashboard. When you come to the Dashboard page look the the left menu bar and scroll down to the Settings tab and select Google Analytics

You will then be directed to a settings page to enter your Site Tracking Code, enter the code in the white box. You can also choose to track the load times, purely your choice. When you are done hit Save Changes

 

#3- Tracking Your Stats

 

After a day or two login to your Google Analytics account and you should be able to track your traffic stats. Keep in mind you will not be able to find your stats in your Dashboard, only in your Google Analytics account page.
