How to Track number of Visitors on Tumblr.

  1. First of all, sign up for a Google Analytics account (you need to create a gmail account if you dont have one yet)
  2. Now you need to fill in the field with your Tumblr adress (yourtumblelog.tumblr.com)
  3. Next screen will ask you to put your name and country.
  4. You must agree with the terms of service before creating the new account
  5. Now you can see the google analytics code that needs to be pasted into your Tumblr. Some themes already include some part of the tracking code, and you would only need to copy and paste the account ID, which looks like this UA-12346078-4. IMPORTANT: Do not close this page.
  6. Let’s find out if your theme in particular allows you to track your visitors through Analytics.  Go to customize, choose appereance and verify if there’s a field called Google Analytics ID, if the answer is yes, then paste your own account ID there.  Then save and close
  7. If the answer to step 6 was no, then we must copy the whole code the Analytics provides and paste it within your theme HTML in order to properly see the number of visits your blog gets.
  8. Go to customize > Theme > Use Custom HTML
  9. With Crtl+F in your browser, search for </head>.  You need to paste the tracking code just above this line.  Then save and close.

How to Check your Tumblr Visitor Stats.

  1. You need to wait until the next morninig to check for updated visitor statistics. Go to the analytics page again an enter your account.
  2. You will see your site as an account, click on it, after that click on View Report.

    My tumblr address has a hyphen in it and when I fill in the required fields for analytics it says that there are invalid characters and it won’t let me submit. Is there any way around this?

    What if your “Advanced” area has a completely BLANK field for “Add Custom CSS”? There isn’t anything in there at all, so I don’t know if just pasting the code in that box will put it in the right place or totally screw the whole thing up…
