Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Getting a Google Analytics account, part of WordPress Plugins: Analytics (2014).
…Before we can use Google Analytics to track the activity on our…WordPress site, we of course have to set up a Google Analytics account.…If you already have a Google account or a Youtube account or a Gmail account…or anything like that, you can use your…existing Google account to login to Google Analytics.…But you still have to set-up a Google Analytics account, under that account.…If you don't have a Google account already,…you can go through the exact same process…and just set up a Google account as…you're signing into Google Analytics for the first time.…
Now I already have a Google account set up,…so I'm going to tie that Google account to Google Analytics.…The first step is to go to google.com/analytics.…Here you get on the landing page, and this page changes all the time.…So what you see here is probably not what I'm seeing.…All you need to do here is click on the Access Google Analytics button.…This will automatically to take you to the signup page, and here you see I'm already…signed in to my Google account, so all I have to do is click Sign Up.…
