I want to sign up for this to include in my website.

I currently use gmail. I went to a link provided in an article I found on how to set up Google Analytics. I logged on at got the attached; this seems out of whack.

What should I do instead?


PS - This is a PERFECT example of no appropriate Topic being available on EE.

    What do you want to see and then do?  Your screenshot shows you are on the Personal Info tab.

    To trgrassijr55,

    That shows me a customer site I set up a while back.

    I don't want that. How can I get it to being able to do a DIFFERENT site?

    I created a JS file  GA.js

    var _gaq = _gaq || [];
       _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-your account-1']);
       _gaq.push(['_setDomainName', '']);
       (function() {
         var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
         ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 
    'http://www') + '';
         var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
    s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

    Open in new window

    Then add to your page

    <script type="text/javascript" src="js/GA.js"></script>

    To eoinosullivan,

    There is no login on (it seems it already has me logged in)

    There is no Admin on top menu bar.

    I see the attached (in pieces, 1 - 3).

    To all,

    I got to the attached. I clicked "Website" (with the gray background). It's a link.

    Nothing happens. It stays on that page.

    I figured it out by deductively following what was recommended here.

    It DOES NOT work like stated, but it hints at a path.
