UPDATE - Tracking Blog Analytics and FeedBurner

Post by meritweb » Wed Mar 19, 2008 8:32 pm

Hi - Is there any way to track our visitors to our blog? Can we insert our Google Analytics code into the blog? Where can I find our RSS Subscribers?

You can insert google analytics code directly into your template's index.tpl file (if you know how to do that), or for an even easier approach, try the google analytics plugin. You can download it from the link at the top of this page, or access it via SPARTACUS if you have the spartacus plugin installed.

As far as tracking your rss subscribers, about the only way you can do that is with a service like feedburner. There is really no way to tell how many people are reading your serendipity generated feeds directly.

Thanks for your tips, Don. I have installed a lot of plugins and love the additional functionality. I would like to know about our RSS subscribers, though - so I created a Feedburner account. How do I install FeedBurner into my blog so I can track our subscribers?

Thanks for everyones help!!

Hi!

you can simply install the "SyndicatioN" sidebarplugin, and then configure your feedburner ID there. This can then automatically offer feedburner feeds for your blog.
