I created a new website yesterday. I am trying to add it to my analytics, but it keeps telling me that the "Property URL is Invalid". I am using the same theme and plugin set-up on other websites, so I don't think that is the problem. But, I can't get a code to put on my website to track it. Is the website too new? How long does it usually take until analytics can find it?

Hi :-)
Analytics doesnt have to find it...

When you enter the url, what is being entered? If you are copy pasting it, are there any empty characters at the beginning or end.. or are you adding the http etc into the field instead of just the domain name

Is it a non standard domain name eg not a .com, .net etc or are there unexpected characters in it?

Sometimes if a domain is in a non english language it will need to be converted to punycode
