Set up Google Analytics

As briefly mentioned above, once people start flocking to see the content on your blog it’s a good time to set up Google Analytics. Even if you’re not writing your blog for profits, it’s always useful to be able to see how many people are visiting your blog, what pages are more popular, and also how they landed on your page. This can help you improve your blog for your current readers, and therefore attract new readers too.
