In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to add your Google Analytics tracking code to your WordPress website. There are 3 ways to install Google Analytics in WordPress.

With A Plugin

If you’re don’t wanna mess around with codes, then it’s the best way for you. Google Analytics plugin by Kevin Sylvestre is the perfect one for this simple task.

Direct Paste Method

You can also directly paste the track code to current theme’s header.php right after the <body> tag.

With functions.php

This is my favorite method for every WordPress related task. Add the following code in your current theme’s functions.php file:

add_action('wp_footer', 'add_googleanalytics');
function add_googleanalytics() { ?>
// Paste your Google Analytics code right here
<?php }

Don’t forget to replace the third line of the above code with your Google Analytics tracking code.
