How to Add a New Google Analytics Account or Website

If you are creating a new website, you’ll probably want to hook up analytics software like Google Analytics. This means you’ll need to create a new account for the website within your Google Analytics settings.

Figuring out this process took me 10 minutes. That’s longer than it takes to write a quick blog post! I think it’s time for Google to really improve the user experience with Analytics.

Step 1 of 3: Find the Admin Settings

Log in at https://analytics.google.com. Then click the admin icon (see screenshot below). This is located at the bottom-left side of your Analytics screen.


Step 2 of 3: Click the “Account” Dropdown Menu

Click the “Account” dropdown, which lets you choose which Analytics account to work with.


Step 3 of 3: Create New Account

Finally, just click the words “Create New account” and fill in the information.


That’s it! I hope this saved you some time.
