Google Analytics doesn't seem to show traffic after setting up preferred domain

Hi everyone - I hope you can assist me with this! I've recently changed the preferred domain for my site https://bakedujour.com. Unfortunately, after doing so, it appears that views/visits are no longer being recorded by Google Analytics. I've edited the URL in GA's Admin settings to indicate that it is now https://bakedujour.com - perhaps it just needs some time to settle in? I'm pretty inexperienced with all of this, so I appreciate any guidance you can provide!

Hi Ann,

 

I checked your site and there is no working Google Analytics code. The UA ID appears in the source code with other configuration data but nothing is getting sent to Google Analytics from the website. Please check your website settings and make sure GA tracking is enabled or add the tracking code using another plugin. You can test if GA is implemented correctly using the Google Tag Assistant Chrome extension.

Hope this helps.

Hi Arnold - thanks for your reply, and sorry I totally missed that the code was no longer on my site. Not sure how that happened. I believe it's properly installed now? I sent test traffic to my site and it appears to be working. Although when I installed the Google Tag Assistant extension, under "Where to optimize," it states that there's a "Non-standard implementation." Should I be worried about this?
