    Hi, This is really a nice post on Web Analytics. I was using W3Counter



    oh.. is there a seperate plug-in for Analytics !? I’ve been using Analytics in my several blogs for quite some time, but never heard of a wordpress plug-in.

    thanks for the info.

    I have been looking for some decent detailed information about how to do more with Google Analytics for a while now. This is excellent, very well written and extremely helpful. Thank you.



    u can manually insert the code in footer.php without any plugin

    I agree with atul
    Another option would be to just go the footer.php of your theme and place the code right before tag as Google suggests. That way you don’t overburden your blog/site with another plug-in. Just my two cents



    @Atul, SOB Thanks for your suggestion, footer.php idea is really useful, it minimize the use of plugin. Your Suggestion is appreciated.
