Google Analytics

I would like to use Google Analytics on some of my web pages.

I do not see a closing tag on the pages so where would I paste the above code?

Backlight is ready to support Google Analytics. You just have to paste your Web Property ID in admin/settings. It is part of the Website Settings section. That’s all you need to do. Backlight then will automatically include the Google Analytics code in all your pages.

If it’s just a matter of inserting code, you can do that with phplugins
