    Can you please update this for the new layout of Blogger? I’m having a tough time finishing the last two steps because nothing looks the same and I’m not sure where to find it.

    • To add the analytics tracking code to the new Blogger editor, in your dashboard go to Template > Edit Html. Then click your cursor anywhere inside the coding box and hit Ctrl+F (or Command+F on a Mac) to open a search box. Type in the search box to find the closing head tag. Then paste your code directly BEFORE that and save.

      To access your stats, go to the Stats option in your dashboard. This will give you a limited look at your stats. The more preferred method of viewing your stats is to log directly into your Google Analytics account to view them. Logging right into Google Analytics to view your stats is recommended because it allows you to access ALL of the Google Analytics features and data.
