Publish to Folder on Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion

iWeb Sites Hosted on Other Web Services

To add Google Analytics code you need to have access to the web pages in a folder (Mobile Me does this on iDisk).

Therefore you need to “Publish to a Folder” instead of FTP.

Here I have published to a folder on the Desktop (which I show as list sorted after date).

Make sure the folder for your web site is selected (blue).

Click the “gear” button to bring up the menu with things to do to that folder.

Pick Add Google Analytics (the name you chose when when saved as Finder Plugin)

After a few (15-ish) seconds the Add Analytics script will start which you can see in the the menu in the top of your screen.

The workflow will only take a few seconds to run, so watch out to see it.

Upload/Sync your web site to your service provider with your favorite FTP application. (Transmit which has a sync feature, Fetch, CyberDuck to name a few).


You want to see that the code it there.

Start Safari and visit your site.

This is the shortcut icon in iWeb, but you go there any way you wish.

In Safari pick “View Source”

Scroll all the way down in the code and if you you see something like what is blue below, the code is added.

You can also check if it sent the little message to Google that you just visited the page.

Pick Safari’s Activity Window.

You will get a long list (don’t have 10 Safari windows open when you do this) of things Safari has loaded from the web, but the Google Analytics “count” is just 35 bytes.

Even though Safari has sent the count to Google, Analytics takes as much as 24 hours to update the statistics.

Automator - Save as Application

If you got this working, you may think it is more flexible than you need if you have only one web site you update.

Then follow the Save as Application instructions.
