Hi @Noman K  :-)

There are a few places you can check for it

 

- Plugins eg specifically plugins for adding analytics, a few seo plugins also add it,

alternatively, plugins that give the ability to add js to header or footer of site.

- Current active theme (or child theme) header.php and footer.php,

- The active theme, if it has an admin theme option for adding scripts to header

or footer.

hi Bronwyn,

 

I have checked all the mentioned places before asking the question here. when i check with tag assistant it shows me the GA code below the tag manager code but i can't seem to find it anywhere and i am not really a programmer to modify the wordpress codes.

Hi :-)
Are you able to see the actual tracking code in the source code? GA Tag Assistant will show you a source snippet or tell you if it is in an external js file.. or if it belongs to a 3rd party service eg vimeo (which you have no control over).

 

Can you provide a link to the website?
