How to set up and install Google Analytics in 5 minutes or less, and how to test to ensure the tracking code is installed and working properly on all pages.

Links
Find the "footer.php" file.   It will ensure the code gets placed on every page, and you only have to copy it in once.  Otherwise, if you can't find this type of file or similar, you will need to copy and paste to code on every page manually.

Place the code from the Google Analytics (highlighted in yellow) page right before the tag (highlighted in red) at the bottom of the page.  You can also use another web analytics tool called Clicky, which you can also place right before the body tag.  Most web analytics tools javascript code will go here, with the exception of one or two, that might require some code to go up in the header section.  Now, save the page file (Ctl+S) and you are done!  Now we can test to make sure it is installed properly on all pages.
