Now I have a simple blog platform using Jekyll & GitHub Pages, I need to see whether anyone is looking at it!

Google Analytics

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is super simple to add to Jekyll site. Jump over to sign up for a free Analytics account, then create a new Property (Website to track). Copy the Tracking ID (in the form UA-XXXXXXXX-X) and copy into your _config.yml file:

# Enter your Google Analytics web tracking code to activate tracking
google_analytics: UA-XXXXXXXX-X

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is just slightly more involved to setup.
