How do you add an Etsy badge to your blog on Blogger? And how does Google Analytic work?

Okay, don't laugh. I'm very new at all of this. Also, I heard about Google Analytic. How does that work and is it free?

Adding a badge:
If it is an image, go to Dashboard > edit design > add a gadget > picture

Blogger will then prompt you to upload your picture.

If it is an HTML badge:

Dashboard > edit design > add a gadget > HTML

paste in your HTML code and save. Hope that makes sense!

As for Google Analytics, you need to set up an account there, and get the code from them, which you will place on your blog in the same way that you add HTML as I described above.

Please feel free to contact me if you have a question - I've been using Blogger for years!
Also - I'm not 100% sure on what you mean for Etsy badge... but if you mean the Etsy Mini, you can find it at Your Etsy > Promote > Etsy Mini

copy and paste the code that is generated, then add it as HTML like I described above.

After you add HTML to your blogger design, you can drag and drop the element to where you want it to appear on your blog.
Heya LittleSmilesBoutique!

To insert an Etsy badge or even an Etsy mini you need to copy and paste the code into the HTML of your blog. You can find the badges and Etsy mini here:

community.etsy.com/resources/badges-buttons
help.etsy.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/216
www.etsy.com/mini_generator.php

And yes, Google Analytics is free! You can find out more about how to set yourself up here:

THANK YOU! Sooo helpful!!
Hey AshleyPahl and knickey!

That was great help with the Etsy Mini. I got it posted on my blog in no time. I haven't gotten the chance to look into the Google Analytics yet but can't wait!

HTML and codes are all foreign to me but I hope to learn a thing or two while I figet with it...:)

Thanks a bunch you guys!
Hey LittleSmiles! That's just the way to do it. I, too, had to learn just by doing and experimenting. Luckily Blogger is really user-friendly (I think, anyway :) and soon it will become intuitive to you :)
I put the CraftCult widget on my blog. They give you directions to make a pocket shop here:
