Adding Google Analytics to a Site

So in-order to see if anyone is actually looking at/reading my blog, I decided that the first thing I should do is set up Google Analytics.

I've setup GA on many sites before, the issue is that they keep updating it and everytime I login to google analytic they've changed the interface so it's not as I remember it.
