Access to long-term Analytics account ...
I have had a Google Analytics account for my domain for 8 years but recently I have not been able to log into that account. It might have coincided with when I witch my domain to google for business but either way I haven't been able to log into google analytics for a long time. So here is the background:
- i create and used a Google Analytics account for several years, it was created under user@domainA.com but monitored domainB.com
- I subsequently created a google for business account for domainB.com and now want to continue to monitor the analytics on domainB.com
- I have tried logging into GA using my original userid but it just doesn't seem to allow that anymore
- I have tried logging in under my new userid user@domainB.com but it gives me the following error:
To access your existing Google Analytics account, please use the login user%domainB.email@example.com and the same password."
which says its an invalid page
But then I go to accounts and login using this gtempaccount id and I get in but it's asking me to setup my account again which I don't think I should do as my domainA.com account should have a bunch of data from years past in it and I want to see that data not set it up all over again (without that historical information). Plus I want to set it up under user@domainB.com not this other temp account.
Re: Access to long-term Analytics account ...
most likely you need help from Google staff. I would recommend contacting via AdWords help if possible or through your Google Business contact. I had similar troubles when I had to migrate Google Accounts and ended up to a dead end with gtemp acocunts... It is a really hairy process even if you do everything as instructed...
To make bad day worse, spend it wishing for the impossible
