Step 3: On the next screen, you will be given choice to choose between website or mobile app. Make sure website is selected.

Currently, Google is offering a Universal Access account, which is in beta and comes with extra features and a classic analytics account. Feel free to choose either of them. Even if you choose classic analytics, you will be upgraded to new features once they come out of beta.

Step 3 of Google Analytics Signup

Rest of the information required on the page are quite self-explanatory. You enter your Website’s URL, Account name (it can be anything that you like), country, and the time zone.

Provide your website information

Once you have entered this information click on the Get Tracking ID button. You will be presented with Google Analytics terms and service which you must agree to, so click on I Agree button.

Step 4: Now you will be presented with Google Analytics tracking code. Copy this tracking code because you will need to enter it in your WordPress site.

This area in your wordpress site is found in Dashboard - Settings - Google Analytics.

Leave the analytics browser tab open as you will need to revisit it, once you have installed the code on your WordPress site.
