Hi! 

 

I recently changed my domain (same content). How does this affect my analytics? Do I change the "property" or transfer it?

 

thank you!

What I would do is add an annotation to the GA interface so you can remember what date the domain name changed.
Also be sure to update the website url info in the Property Settings page and each View Setting page


Thanks :-)
