Hi Rita,


Are you trying to type the name of your website to this field?




Seems like Google Analytics is working properly on your site. Try to use this kind of format that you see in the picture. If it still doesn't work, could you please take a screenshot and post it here?


One quick tip: you've installed Google Analytics in the footer section of your page. It works but it's not officially recommended.


Here's why: 

If the code is toward the end of the page and the page takes a significant amount of time to load, it's possible that the user could navigate away (click a link or close the browser window) before the tracking code has loaded, meaning you would miss capturing data about that pageview.


A header is the best place for that because GA tracking code is asynchronous, meaning that the browser doesn't need to wait for the code to finish loading to continue rendering elements that come after it on the page. It means that you can safely put the code at or near the top of your page.


Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.

You only need to put into the field, without the http.

Hope this helps.
