Good Afternoon,

At my company, Simploy, we created a google account to utilize google analytics. However, that account has been lost to history, but, the tracking code is being utilized within our Wordpress dashboard.

Thus, I have the tracking code but I cannot log in to my google account.

So, how can I recover the old google account using the tracking code?

One thing you might try is searching for older versions of your website and then examining the source code in those older versions for the string UA- which is the way that the property ID number begins.
