Tracking Code Not Found - Can't Get Started

I have manually entered my tracking code on two pages of my site. I have done this four times now. The code is there in the page source, yet the admin page tells me that it has not been added to my site. I have double-checked all the numbers and the language, and the code is placed immediately above the </head> tag. Now what?

Hi Zachariah,

don't worry - the message in the Analytics admin has a considerable delay before being updated. Check your real-time report in Analytics for first results.

Well, I'd like to know that it's working before I manually add it to 64 pages. How considerable is that delay? It's awfully misleading to say TRACKING NOT INSTALLED and then "Last Checked" with a time stamp that includes minutes and seconds.

Yes, that's very misleading. Glad to know that it's working.
