Google Analytics tracking code not working

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,
I have set up Google Analytics (GA) for my website (http://giftelements.com) and added the html tracking script directly to my pages. I am using Wordpress. It is a very new website so I don't expect many visitors. But from my experience traffic should hover around 5 to 10 views for new sites. But my GA keeps showing zero visitors. For some reason, I think my GA code is not working.

Appreciate if someone can help.

Regards,

Nealda

Hi,

 

You have added the tracking code to the content area of the site and it is not fired properly. In order to fix the problem, you need to remove that code and implement Google Analytics tracking using a Wordpress plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/wk-google-analytics/

When the plugin is installed, you only need to enter your tracking ID in the plugin settings. Hope this helps, let me know if you were able to get it working.

Hi,

I installed the plugin and GA seems to be working for my site now.

I’m still monitoring the situation, but thanks a million.

my web software uses shared borders.  It has a header + Text.  Will Google Analytics Tracking Code work if I place it in the header of the shared border?  I have a very large site.
