Add a Site Meter to Your Blog

The purpose for adding a Site Meter to your blog or website is so you can monitor your traffic. A Site Meter will display the number of page views and visitors that visit your site in the past hour, day, week and year. It also will show you the location from where they came from and many other interesting stats. There are many free Site Meters available, you can do a Google Search for free Site Meters or simply choose this Site Meter and open your free account.

They have a variety of web counter styles from which to choose. Once you have selected your style of Site Meter, you will be given a set of instructions. I prefer to skip the instructions and click on "tracking HTML". You will see "tracking HTML" in that same paragraph at the top of the page for instructions. This is also where you will see your HTML code you will need to copy and paste into your Add Page Elements. I chose the JavaScript HTML for reasons they state.

  • Open a new browser window
  • Sign in to your blogger account, which takes you to the dashboard
  • Click on Layout
  • Add Page Elements
  • Click on HTML JavaScript
  • Add To Blog
  • Copy and paste the Site Meter code provided
  • Save Changes
  • Preview, place it in the proper location for your blog
  • Click Save again at top right
