Find website using Google Analytics code

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Our Google Analytics is used by a number of employees within our company and at some point an account has been created by somebody that is labelled 'email tracking' that has a certain tracking ID

The default URL is set to our main website, however our main website uses a different account thus has a different tracking ID.

 

I have manually searched all our websites for the 'email tracking' accounts tracking ID and it is not on any page, thus I wondered if it was possible to find out which website is hosting the tracking code, and whether it is even one of ours?

Hi,

I found this tool, it seems to be working: http://goo.gl/J9lIoY

Let me know if you were able to find out what sites are using your tracking code.

It's possible if u use some kind of webpage parsers (e.g. teleport pro) and than search through whole html code. Does this ID collects some info? U may try researcg through content reports to find page urls or page title and then google it

I have been through the reports but the path to files is always just the root '/' so as my default URL is set to my site this is what is shown, unfortunately there are no other pages shown in the results.

This appears to be the issue for some of the stats, so will look to implement

You can set up a new view and a filter that includes the hostname:

This way you'll see where are the visits coming from as the data is flowing in.
