My GA tracking ID keeps changing for my Wix website!

Hi.  I am trying to run a new Wix e commerce website and I have dropped analytics twice in the last week. This is absolutely killing me because I can't see what is happening with all my advert spending.

 

I am not sure if the tracking ID is being changed on the Google side or the Wix side because I'm not writing it down... I guess I should. All I know is that I log in, find out I only have one or two page views as opposed to a few hundred like normal, then look and see the tracking ID that Wix has is different than what GA is showing for the property.

 

What is the problem? I don't have time to toy around with this. I just need it to work.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

the tracking ID in Google Analytics is created when you add an Account or Property so it is not definitely changing in GA end.

I reckon you have followed these instructions:
https://www.wix.com/support/html5/article/adding-your-google-analytics-code-to-your-site
and you have not done any customizations in your page template code or similar that could affect Google Analytics code implementation?

I followed the Wix instructions. Wix should not change the code I entered for any reason, should they?

I have not done any coding. I have only edited templates.

Definitely not.

So the code stayed for few days after you changed it?
Please write down the wrong code for future reference and just to make sure : That wrong code has nothing to do with you or GA accounts that you have?
