If you are like me who keeps adding websites in Google Analytics now and then, you must have felt frustrated trying to figure out how and where in Google Analytics you can add a new website for tracking.

In this article I share step-by-step screenshots showing how you can add a new website (property) in Google Analytics under an existing account.
Go to https://www.google.com/analytics/ and click on Access Google Analytics at the top right.
Once you are logged in, click on Admin at the top.
Click on the Account dropdown and select the account under which you would like to add a new website.
In the middle Property column, click on the dropdown and Create new property.
Fill in your website details and click Get Tracking ID button.
You should now see the Tracking ID and tracking code.
