Many people who generally blog at blogger don’t know about Google Analytics. In case they want to track the statistics of a blooger blog generally they used to get code from third-party tools like stats counter etc. It is not a good practice to use code of third-party tools in your blogger in most of the cases which will increase your blog loading speed and some time it may cause spam issues. In 2011 Google introduced in-built stats checker for blogger which helps the blogger to easily track the stats but this stat reporting is not as good as analytics. If you ask me What is Analytics ? then below couple of points are for you.
