For those of you who are more visual, here is a step-by-step video.
Otherwise, written instructions are as follows:
Go to http://www.google.com/analytics/ and select “New to Google Analytics? Sign Up Now”.
If you already have a Google Account, you can sign in with those credentials (and then skip to Step 3). If you do not currently have a Google Account, select “Create an account now” and enter all necessary information.
Enter your Website’s URL, Account Name, Time Zone Country and Time Zone, and then select “Continue”.
Enter your Contact Information: Last Name, First Name and Country, and then select “Continue”.
Read and accept Google Analytics User Agreement, and then select “Create New Account”.
At this point, if you are not the person in charge of editing and making updates to your website, you should copy (shortcut = Ctrl + c) and paste (shortcut = Ctrl + v) the tracking code into a Notepad or Wordpad file, send to the person in charge of editing your website, then select “Save and Finish”.
