I grabbed some information from Google for you, about installing the Android SDK for Eclipse.
- After downloading the SDK, unpack the .zip archive to a suitable location on your machine.
- Install a custom plugin called Android Development Tools (ADT), which adds integrated support for Android projects and tools. The ADT plugin includes a variety of powerful extensions that make creating, running, and debugging Android applications faster and easier.
- To download and install the ADT plugin, set up an Eclipse remote update site as described in the steps below.

Updating the ADT Plugin
- Start Eclipse, then select Help > Software Updates > Find and Install....
- In the dialog that appears, select Search for new features to install and press Next.
- Press New Remote Site.
- In the resulting dialog box, enter a name for the remote site (e.g. Android Plugin) and enter this as its URL: https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/. Press OK.
- You should now see the new site added to the search list (and checked). Press Finish.
- In the subsequent Search Results dialog box, select the checkbox for Android Plugin > Eclipse Integration > Android Development Tools and press Next.
- Read the license agreement and then select Accept terms of the license agreement, if appropriate. Press Next.
- Press Finish.
- The ADT plugin is not signed; you can accept the installation anyway by pressing Install All.
- Restart Eclipse.
- After restart, update your Eclipse preferences to point to the SDK root directory ($SDK_ROOT):
1. Select Window > Preferences... to open the Preferences panel. (Mac OS X: Eclipse > Preferences)
2. Select Android from the left panel.
3. For the SDK Location in the main panel, press Browse... and find the SDK root directory.
4. Press Apply, then OK
- Select Help > Software Updates > Find and Install....
- Select Search for updates of the currently installed features and press Finish.
- If any update for ADT is available, select and install.
- Select Help > Software Updates > Manage Configuration.
- Navigate down the tree and select Android Development Tools <version>
- Select Scan for Updates under Available Tasks.
