I want to set up Google analytics on my Wordpress website.

What's the easiest way to add the code?

I find adding it to the themes functions file to be easiest, if you're editing the core theme you might want to set up a child theme before doing so.

Paste this onto the functions.php file

add_action('wp_head', 'wpb_add_googleanalytics');
function wpb_add_googleanalytics() { ?>
// Paste your Google Analytics code here
<?php } ?>

If you're not comfortable with code the next best way is the monster insights plugin which handles everything for you and is pretty hard to mess up.

Double check your analytics installation, doing it incorrectly will give you incorrect data. The most common mistake is including it twice (which drops your bounce rate to 0%).

You can use this online tool to check your GA install:
