Analytics Set Up

Hi,

 

I added the analytics to the website about 4 days ago and it says that it isn't set up.  Can someone take a look and see if the code is in the correct area?  www.swingmastercorp.com

 

Thanks,

 

Tony

Hi Again,

 

My apologies, I did not have 'word wrap' enabled and was unaware of the never-ending lines of code you had going there. 

 

Something does look odd though - here is an analytics snippet I just pulled out from one of my analytics accounts:

 

<script type="text/javascript">

  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'Account number removed']);
  _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

  (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src=('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
  })();

</script>

 

It looks to me that somewhere along the way, your code has been altered and these html tags '&#160' seem to be all over the place.  Unfortunately, I can't tell you much more than that nor so I know that these alterations have an affect.  If you continue to have trouble, you should probably seek advise form the Analytics folks over at the aforementioned Analytics Forum.

Hi Tony,

 

I hope you are the administrator of the Google Analytics account. When you go to Admin section and click on Tracking Code, what info is given in front of the Tracking Status? Receiving data or something else? For best tracking purpose, code has to be placed before closing </head> tag of HTML.

 

For more details, you can refer to this article or post in the specific Analytics forum here.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi,

 

Yes I am the admin.  This is the message that I get:

 

Tracking Not InstalledLast checked: Aug 27, 2012 7:10:14 AM PDT
The Google Analytics tracking code has not been detected on your website's home page. For Analytics to function, you or your web administrator must add the code to each page of your website.

 

Thank you for your quick response.

 

Tony

Hi Tony,

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

I did a quick 'view source' on a few of your pages and was unable to find Google Analytics tracking code anywhere.

 

What is www.webtraxs.com?  Is this the analytics tracking that you have installed?  You will need to add the Google Analytics tracking code to your pages in order to use Google Analytics.  Google will only be able to track their code on your site.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi,

 

No I used the tracking code from google.  When I do a view source it shows up:

 

Here is part of the source page:

 

<html><head><title>Swingloader Rentals, New Swingloaders, Remanufactured Swingloaders: Swingmaster</title><meta content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" http-equiv="Content-Type"><meta name="description" content="Swingmaster is the premier manufacturer and distributor of new and remanufactured swingloaders from 10,000 to 20,000 capacity and swingloader accessories."/><meta name="keywords" content="tie exchangers, knuckle booms, grapples, brush cutters, tie handling booms, hydraulic booms, clamshells, rail tongs, augers, backhoes, magnets, couplers, snow plows, spare tires, train air brakes, fork tie baler, rail threaders, yard buckets, track"/><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/style.css"><script type="text/javascript">&#160; var _gaq = _gaq || [];&#160; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34295625-1']);&#160; _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);&#160; (function() {&#160;&#160;&#160; var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;&#160;&#160;&#160; ga.src=('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';&#160;&#160;&#160; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);&#160; })();</script><LINK href="/x2cms/x2cmsCSSstyle.css" type=text/css rel=stylesheet></head>

 

Is this in the correct spot?
