Hi all,


I have the same problem as many others, but I dont seem to find the answer in the forum: I just started (trying) to track my data from my website on Squarspace. However, it doesnt work, it says "missing tracking code". I have copy pasted the ID to my website (in Squarespace). Do you have an idea about what could be wrong?


Thanks! Gitte

Hi Gitte :-)
It often takes 24-48hrs for data to start showing in the reports.

Do you have any filters applied to the View in analytics that may be blocking data?

Regarding the missing tracking code msg, Squarespace platform uses its own methods for installing the tracking code
Sometimes these installations are not picked up by the Google system that checks for it,
and it will give a false error.

Has it been over 24-48hrs since you installed the tracking code?
