Firstly, you'll need to set up a Google Analytics account. You can find instructions on how to do so here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1008080?hl=en.

Now that you've set up your Analytics account you can integrate it with your uSkinned theme in three very quick steps :-).


Step 1.

Go to your Google Analytics account > Admin > Expand ".JS Tracking Info" > Click on Tracking Code (see screenshot below).
