Hi, my real time in Google Analytics has not been working. I don't have any filters applied. I know that I am receiving traffic to my site. How can I fix this?

Hi :-)

Have you checked if the tracking code is still installed or if there are any 'obvious' errors with the code?
This can be done easily with a tool called Google Tag Assistant

Available here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tag-assistant-by-google/kejbdjndbnbjgmefkgdddjlbokphdefk


With instructions on how to use it here:

Please post back if it shows errors and you need help with how to fix it or you have further questions


eta. also bare in mind if you are checking your site with mobile.. sometimes hits can be batched to preserve battery life

so sometimes they are not sent at the time they occur re real time reporting
