Could find no clear, unambiguous description on GA, Wordpress or anywhere else. Lots of fog and contradictions. Where does the GA code go? In the theme? On the posts? Where on the page? Header? Footer? I am using version 3.4.6. Thanks.

There is a Google Analytics plug-in. I use it on my site and it works great. (Wordpress 3 and Atahualpa 3.5.3) This way you don't have to edit any theme files.

Thanks JD and studioelle. Much appreciated.

Another question: I have a GA account and I had installed the WP-GA plugin. I got strange GA numbers that didn't match WP stats. I'd like to uninstall GA and re-install WP-GA plugin. Is there any secret to uninstalling GA? Do I need to uninstall it or should I do something else to make the results of both plugins match?

I put the code in the footer.php and that seems to be working for me.

You can edit footer.php and add things there, but when you update the theme, you will lose the change and have to do it over. Adding it using the theme option will keep it around over theme upgrades.

Hi there

I'd like to add a widget for GA yet there's loads of them - which would you recommend and why please?

Also, if you install one widget and later install a different one will you lose the date that had been collected or will it all still be in the google analytics account?

Thanks very much.

Google analytics info is collected on their server so I don't see why changing the plugin should have any bearing on the stored data.

I have only used Google Analytics for WordPress so can't give comparisons. I probably decided on that one after testing several though. The author is well known and the plugin was recently updated.

in google analytics, it says:

Copy the following code, then paste it onto every page you want to track immediately before the closing </head> tag

however, the ATAHUALPA html/css inserts page says to insert it at the body bottom.

I have some troubles with linking adsense to analytics, and i wonder if this is the reason...

I thought you just wanted to reposition the search box.

Well you could wrap that code in a div like below and put it just before the menu you want it to the right of
HTML Code:
<div style="float:right;"><form action="http://www.google.com.my/cse" id="cse-search-box">
<div>
<input type="hidden" name="cx" value="partner-pub-9166781043518947:85hqp5-tjr9" />
<input type="hidden" name="ie" value="ISO-8859-1" />
<input type="text" name="q" size="31" />
<input type="submit" name="sa" value="Search" />
</div>
</form>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com.my/cse/brand?form=cse-search-box&amp;lang=en"></script></div>
