Hi Steve :-)
The Default View setting on the Property Settings page is the name of a particular View

To change the Name of a View -

  • Log into Analytics and select the Admin tab,
  • Then select a View from the drop down in the View column.
  • Click on View Settings below the drop down.
  • Change the View Name to whatever you want to call it so you can identify the View.
  • Change the Website's URL if necessary too.

- Also note if the website domain has changed and you want to keep tracking with the same Property,

you also need to change the Default URL on the Property Settings page and make sure the new domain

is on the Referral Exclusion List

Hi Steve :-)
If the tracking code is not installed before the closing </head> tag, you will have to either move it so it is
or you will need to choose a different method of verifying site ownership in Search Console
