Need help with Google Analytics tracker HTML in Affilohost

Can someone please help me? I do not know much about HTML and that's why I elected to use the website builder within Affilohost (premium members) which does all the coding for me.

I am now trying to get Google Analytics working with my site and got the HTML code for the tracker from Google. They say:
"Copy the following code, then paste it onto every page you want to track immediately before the </body> tag."

I cannot find this in the website builder. Where do I look? I can see the </body> tag for some pages when I view the resource page live on the web.

When I edit pages within the website builder I do see some HTML but not closing the body of the page and I know it must be somewhere.

Any help appreciated - learning, learning, learning...

I've never used Affilihost, but is there any tool that lets you add custom html? Because if so, just paste your google analytics code into that and make sure you do that for every page.

I haven't used Affilohost either, but ideally, you'll want to code up your site so that those things are exactly the same on all pages are in some 'include' type file.

Just imagine if your site was a few hundred pages large and you made 1 little mistake in that piece of code and then had to change. It'd be a lot easier to change it just once, right?!

If you're using PHP, you can use include(). If you're using straight HTML, you can do includes with SSIs (if your webhost allows it).

And if any of this sounds like gobbledygook and/or totally overwhelming, then I recommend snagging a book (and there are tons: http://is.gd/ajmcL) or outsourcing it.

Hopefully, this sets you on the right path. G'luck! ;-)

PS> Don't worry, after you do this once, you won't ever think it was tough!

Thanks for your help kjhosein!

I intend using Affilohost and the webbuilder for a number of websites and I think it is important that someone (maybe staff?) that knows this particular webbuilder, pass on a solution. After all, I am paying membership here for these benefits! ;-)

If only I can find the </body> tag for every page :-( , as per Google, it is just a matter of copy and paste.

I must also say my home page is a flash page.
