How Many Followers Do You Have? Do You Want To Know?

This question drove me up the wall.  I think I searched for the answer for the last year and it was right in front of me.  I signed up for Google Analytics (you can sign up yourself HERE) and found my total subscribers right away.

There is a lot of great information which I haven't quite figured out how to use yet, but some day I might.  I thought that if I can save one person from having to search for this the hard way, it would be important to share.

I FORGOT THIS PART OF THE POST

Once you sign up for Google Analytics, sign in to your account. 
It will default to a monthly view and you can change this by clicking on the tabs in the upper right hand corner.  You will have a choice of DAY WEEK MONTH YEAR
Then scroll down and where you see your blog address, click on VIEW REPORT
On the right side of this screen, you will see a DASHBOARD, click on the second option, VISITORS and you will get your total number of unique visitors.

  1. just started following your blog -- great reviews.
    "blogger in draft" (a link at the bottom of the dashboard page) has a tab called "stats" which basically gives you the same info as google analytics right from blogger. i think it's a new thing; i just discovered earlier today and thought i'd pass on the info.

  3. I believe it's really hard to truly get a number of how many people stop by your blog. I have tons of people that say they read my blog regularly. They don't visibly follow because they don't have a blog themselves. I'm going to check out the link you gave me just to see if my hunch is right.

  5. Hmm, I found the total subscribers there earlier today and now all I can find it total unique visitors. I just added the exact directions to get to the visitor totals.
