Goal verify gives a good percentage but once it's saved I get 0 results

I'm setting up a basic destination goal in Google Analytics. I'd like it to track how many visitors reach the "Thank you" page after submitting a Request a Quote form. When I click "Verify this Goal" I get back a 1.29% conversion rate, which makes sense. However, after I save the goal I get no data from it at all. All the goal tracking says there has been zero traffic on that page, but I can go into the separate Pages section and drill down and see there that there HAS been traffic to that page. How do I get this to register properly?

Hi Lindsey,

Verify This Goal will give a number that your goal would have had if it had been already created. Goal stats are only recorded from when you make the goal, onwards.

(Same goes for conversions in AdWords).

hi Lindsey,

Have you properly setup Analytics code all through your website? If you are using PPC try using conversions on google adwords, to help with that.
