    Google Analytics Wordpress...

    Hey, so yesterday i installed the free plugin "ultimate google analytics" into my wordpress blogs using the instructions listed on the wordpress plugin download site. I checked today, knowing it takes a little while for analytics to run, and it says that the tracking is not installed. When i paste the tracking info into the code that i can edit in wordpress, it returns a fatal error. How do i get this to work? Thanks!

    Skip the plugins, and just paste the GA code into the footer.php file of your theme.

    Even I got a problem.
    Not able to use Google Analytics.
    They ask me to enter some meta or some code. But I don't know where to put it.

    I suspect that's Google Webmaster Tools, rather than Analytics.

    Open up the header.php of your template and place it between your <head> and </head> tags.

    Do like Dan says and put the code exactly as given to you(no spaces or anything) in the footer. Some of the premium themes have a spot for you to put it in the footer.
