2.) Login to your DNN Portal as a superuser or host account
3.) Rollover host and go to extensions. Click on the Available Extensions Tab.
4.) Click on the install button next to the Google Analytics module. After the module has been installed, it will appear under the 'Module' drop down list in the Control Panel, under the name "Google Analytics."
5.) On the homepage of your DotNetNuke portal, click 'Add New Module' and add the "Google Analytics" to the page. You will be able to physically see the module in 'Edit' mode, but the module will disappear once logged out of DNN.
