403 Error service not available (not sure if analytics working at all)

alright im very confused and very frustrated. im fairly new to creating websites so unsure what to do..


i'll start off by saying i created a site in which google analytics was working. i was using a plugin for this. i then created another site and tried to use the same account to register analytics with another site. i was using the same plugin. everything was working and then i randomly got a 403 error - this service is unavailable in your country. no changes, nothing done to my account it just randomly popped up.


i then did research on that for a while and got it working again. i disabled all plugins reactivated google analytics dashboard for wp plugin, reauthorized and it worked. it was then tracking my site and i know i had 497 page views. then it randomly decided to do 403 error again. again, no changes were made to the account it just randomly did this. this time when i went to go fix it , i would try to reauthorize the plugin it would now say "property not found". so, it wasn't getting anywhere. i then contacted my hosting company to see if there was a problem there, in which they tried to help me. they couldn't find a solution so they told me to download yoast analytic plugin for wordpress.


at this point, i dont know if there was a problem with my google analytic account itself or whether its a plugin.


i thought yoast plugin was working as it was easy to set up but nothing was showing up in the plugin itself. i will paste the code into the plugin and it says "saved setting" yet nothing about the plugin changes at all. no assurance that its working . the employee told me that it will just show up on my analytics account so i waited. however, i checked and noticed that my page views stayed the same, yet i know thats not possible. i waited a few days to see if results (analytics) would show up but they did not. i did a real-time test to see if it would register, it did not. page views have not changed in a few days.


i then used another email. which did not have any other sites registered to see if it was possibly my analytics account set up. i did not tinker with any settings and used the basic settings. i then tried to yoast plugin in which it was doing the same thing as the last. and the other plugin - google anayltics dashboard for WP - would say "property not found"


i do not know what to do

Also, for what its worth

I downloaded another plugin and have tried both emails. This plugin tells me:

"It seems like you are not registered for Google Analytics or you don't have any Google Analytics Account"

not sure why. as i said, i used the previous email on another site with no problems. and then added another email that was brand new with nothing altered and it gave me this
