How to install Google Analytics on your self-hosted WordPress Site (video tutorial)

I like how well it handles tracking clicks to downloads and external links, and how you can select not to track your own activity when you’re logged in as an administrator.

Hat tip to the Capture Fox plugin for Firefox for making an excellent FF plugin for screecast videos.

Here’s the How-To (hit Fullscreen to enjoy all the delicious goodness):
