OK. In the top level of the website source, there is a file called 
"skeleton.html" which references the following bit of code --

<!--#include virtual="/scripts/google-analytics.js" -->

I didn't dig far enough to find how "skeleton.html" is used ( I forgot) 
but this this is example for the google-analytics code snippet that is 
used. Basically, this needs to be included in the site you want 
analytics to be used on by putting it in the (header) files that 
generate the site. And, you might  take a look at recent instructions 
from Google. Things change.
