GA Only Tracking Chrome Visitors

I've been puzzling over why my GA isn't tracking all my visitors.  My blog is fairly new, but I know I have traffic coming in (giveaway entries, comments, etc.).  However GA isn't showing the traffic.  The only hits/pageviews it is showing is a random hit here and there from other countries (none in the US/Canada) and all the visitors it is tracking are using Chrome.


I did a traffic test and the Live shows I'm there, but my visit isn't tracked or "saved".


my website is:


Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Hi, Sara B,

The analytics implementation looks fine, and I can see pageview hits going to the property UA-75011096-2 in both Chrome and Firefox. Make sure you are checking the correct property.

Also, data doesn't get processed right away, and you may need to wait up to 24 hours for the data to show up in your standard reports. Try checking again in a few hours. Good thing is that you do see it in Real-Time though.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your reply!  That makes me feel a little better to know the code is installed correctly Smiley Happy


I am looking at the correct property under "Audience Overview"  What I'm seeing is definitely not accurate traffic for the last few days (as I mentioned I have a giveaway posted and there are entries as well as comments on another post) and none of those visitors are showing up here.  I also truly hope my bounce rate isn't 100% Smiley Sad

Can you advise what I'm doing wrong?  I need true traffic stats for advertisers and sponsors of my posts.

Hi Sara B,

Could you please upload screenshot without sensitive information on it? Then maybe we could help.

Screenshots aside I noticed that on your homepage apart from Universal Analytics code reporting to UA-75011096-2 property, you have implemented old Google Analytics code (ga.js) reporting to UA-29210675-1 property ( Is there any particular reason for that?

Also from implementing side it is recommended that your Universal Analytics code should be placed just before closing head tag i.e. </head>. So in your case it should look like this:

(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),

ga('create', 'UA-75011096-2', 'auto');
ga('send', 'pageview');

Here's what I'm seeing:

It appears I'm getting a few more hits to track on this page, but I still think it isn't picking up everything.


I have the code implemented through my Genesis WP theme which puts it in.


As for the code -- I use GiveawayTools for the giveaway widget on one of my posts.  I wasn't aware that widget code was old or wrong.
