Google analytics is one of the best free tool to monitor your site stats and traffic. This is one of the first thing which I recommend for every blogger should Install.

Most of the time when I talk about Thesis WordPress theme, I always highlighted one major benefit of Thesis is, it strip down at least 4-5 plugin. Yesterday we shared a post on How to avoid WordPress post duplication using robots meta tag in Thesis Theme. That post will help you to get rid of one plugin at least.
Here is another video which will help you to get rid of another plugin from wordpress dashboard. In this video you will learn how quickly you can add Google analytics code into your Thesis theme header script in Thesis settings. You can also add other codes in the same fashion in Thesis theme.
I’m sure you will enjoy this. And do let us know which wordpress theme you are using and which one do you suggest for other bloggers?
