  • Open your iWeb site by clicking on the "Open Website" button and selecting the appropriate folder from your hard drive.

  • Note that if you are opening your site directly from your iDisk (and not from your hard drive), then you must disable iDisk Sync - change it to "Off". The iWeb SEO tool will NOT function correctly if iDisk Sync is "On". When your site is loaded into the iWeb SEO Tool, you will see a list of all the files from your site on the left hand side of the interface.
  • Under "Site Settings" (1), paste the StatCounter code into the "Analytics code" box (2) and press "Apply to Entire Site" button (3).
