Trying to create new account in Google Analytics and get error message "Default URL is invalid. "

I am trying to create a new account in Google Analytics to get tracking code for a website, but when I enter the URL: http://ladybuglawn.ca/ (and I have also tried http://www.ladybuglawn.ca/), I get an error message that says:  "Default URL is invalid."  What should I do?

 

Thanks!

Hi, Vanessa,

Try entering it without the protocol ("http://") part. That part should already be selected from the drop-down menu right beside the input field.

mahalo;

 

Please note the example text in that field says something like "http://example.com" - the text needs to be changed as it's misleading. 

 

thanks!
