How do I fix "Bad Event Tracking Code"

(not set) entry present in reports for property XYZ


And when I click on Details this is what shows up:


The Landing Pages report has a (not set) entry.

A pageview hit must precede event hits in order for the event hits to include the page that they fire from. When event hits aren't preceded by a pageview, Google Analytics doesn't have the page for the event hits, so their page is (not set).

Verify that tracking code for property XYZ sends a pageview hit before sending any events.


How do I fix this? As it is affecting my Alexa Rank as well.

It seems that you are sending an event before a pageview was sent. Make sure that you have your GA tracking code in the head section of your pages and that you have a ga('send', 'pageview') command before your ga('send', 'event'...) command. Hope this helps.
