    This author states that you should place the tracking code at the end of your page, even the footer, and says that is recommended by Google. There are two very good reasons this is incorrect.

    1. In the Google Analytics page that generates the code and script, it clearly states "Copy the following code, then paste it onto every page you want to track immediately before the closing </head> tag."
    2. If you place the code at the bottom, you likely not to catch visits where the visitor bounces before the page fully loads.
