On the occasion first note
from the Blogger Guide series, many questions arose about Google Analytics. The fact that Google Analytics is worth having (not only in the case of blogging collaborations, but also to track the statistics of your blog) we already know, but how do you find yourself in all these statistics?
The Google Analytics post is divided into two parts. Today you will find out how to set up an account, what is the tracking code and how to add it in the blogger panel.
In the next note I will say a little more about the statistics themselves - what to pay attention to and which to send to the principals.

Google Analytics is a free tool, and the statistics offered are very accurate and can tell us not only on which day how many Users visited your blog, but also what post was most read.
Blogger statistics are not as accurate. Actually, it's not worth using them at all.
To set up an account and have access to the Google Analytics panel, you must have an account on gmail.com (but since you have a blog on blogspot.com, we can skip this point). The Google Analytics panel in Polish should also be clear.
The panel may vary slightly depending on whether you have one Google Ads or not.
How to create an account?
and click "create account", then fill in all the fields you will be asked to. Simple right? 🙂
How do you link Google Analytics to a blog?
After registration and going to the Google Analytics panel go to the "Administration" tab at the very top and click on "tracking information", then select 'tracking code'. When you go to the 'tracking code' tab, you'll see your unique tracking ID. For me it looks like this: UA-XXXXXXXX-X (where 'X' are numbers).
Copy the tracking ID and enter the blogger panel. Find bookmark "Settings" and click "Other". At the very bottom is the "Google Analytics" field. Paste the tracking ID you copied here. From now on, Google Analytics will collect information about Users on your blog.
You need to wait around 24 for statistics. After this time, you should have the first statistics in the panel. How to read them? You will learn in the second part of the note about Google Analytics.
