Problem Connecting Blogger with Google Analytics

Hi,

 

I have a blogger account but I am using my own URL - should I be putting that new URL into Google Analytics or the original blogger name. i.e  surfergirl.blogspot.com OR the new one surfergirl.com ? (this is not my real blogger name - just using as an example)

 

I also don't understand if just inputting that code into Settings /Advanced is all I have to do to start tracking visitors OR

do I also have to input additional coding into every single page on my blogger site to get analytics to do it's thing?

 

Thanks - I am very new to setting up/working with any sort of coding so sorry for the inane question!

Hi Cindy :-)
You need to use the new custom domain not the blogspot.com address.

There is a field provided in Settings > Other to add your Tracking ID.
That is all that is required to start tracking your blog.
The blogger system than adds the tracking code with your tracking id to all your blog pages/posts

Thanks
