Are you referring to the Javascript code?

 

Do you own and host this website using your own hosting or is it a free website platform like blogger.com?

 

Essentially do you have access to the files where all the codes are?

 

If so you need to copy and paste that bit of code into every page of your website immediately before the closing </head> tag.

 

Once done you will be able to start monitoring your traffic in Analytics.

Hi Rene,

 

In order to verify you own the web site, Google asks you to place the downloaded file in the root directory of the web site. You do this the same way you upload your other content.

 

You do not upload to Analytics, you up load to your own web site. If you're not sure how to do that, ask your hosting service. Usually, it will be with FTP.

 

The alternative method is to place a special meta-tag in the head section of your default document--the one that shows when you enter only the web site domain.

 

Best of Luck!

 

Pete
