Hi,

 

http://centerstagesocial.com/google_analytics_auto.js doesn't seem to exist, you are seeing your website source code in the console.

I'd suggest installing the tracking code using a wordpress plugin.

 

Let me know if you have questions.

Would you suggest any particular WordPress plugin over another?

For eg. this one https://wordpress.org/plugins/googleanalytics/

It simply adds the tracking code to the site, you only need to enter your UA-ID.

Ok, I installed google analytics plugin and set up my analytics code. The plugin is active and appears to be running but I still have the error.

You just need to remove the call to the non existing script in order to resolve the error:

 

<script src='/google_analytics_auto.js'></script>
