Hi!

 

An external partner are helping us with google adwords and google analytics. They have added me as an administrator so when I log into Google Analytics I can see our webisite traffic and do analysies on my own.

 

How can I find out if we own the Google Analytics account where I find all our history? In case we change supplier I do not want to risk to loose all history of visits...Can I see this when I'm logged in?


Thanks

Maria

Hello Maria,

 

If you own the domain for which the agency has created your Google Analytics account, that directly implies that you are the owner of that Google Analytics account. Additionally, the agency has given you the administrator rights, which is actually good and I believe an indication of Transparency.

 

Until and unless somebody deletes that Google Analytics account, the history will be preserved for that. Also, make sure that you have the correct analytics code installed on your website for proper web tracking and analysis purpose.

 

As this forum is dedicated to Adwords related queries, for more specific answer, you can post this question over Google Analytics Help Forum.

 

Hope that helps!

Hello Maria,

 

I'm not sure if there is an official way but this is one way to do it:

 

  1. Login to the Analytics profile for your website.
  2. Select the Admin tab in the top right hand corner of the interface.
  3. While within the Profiles tab select the Users tab below it.
  4. Identify which user in the list has an uneditable settings button, this is the owner of the account.

Did this partner create the Analytics account for you or did you give them initial access?

Thanks Scott, however I cannot see a Profile tab and User tab on the page. Is that a sign of that I don't own the page?
