Tracking ID status "Tracking not installed" despite being installed

Hi,

I copied and pasted my HTML snippet into my page(before </head> closing tag), but Tracking ID was showing status "Tracking not installed". So I made a analyticstracking.php file and included it right after a <body> tag, but problem persists. FYI, page is made entirely in code editor, so no templates, no code alteration after saving, just uploading to servers. I am using Bootstrap and jQuery frameworks, couldn't it be the matter? Page URL is " lenimentus.xyz ". Thank you for your answer.

Hi Adam,

Your code is fine, you can move it back to the head tag. Data is being sent to Google Analytics from the site. If you have just added the code you need to wait 24-48h for the tracking status to update. Hope this helps.

I thought it was already because there is statement like " Last checked: Nov 10, 2015 3:16:11 AM PST " in that section and that misled me. Thank you very much for checking and providing information. Best regards

When in doubt, use the Real-Time reports to see if traffic is flowing into your account.
The "Tracking not installed" notice is a leftover from the old tracking code detection engine in the admin. Don't pay it much attention, unless it's still there next month ;-)
You can also use the Tag Assistant for Chrome or Hub'Scan to test whether your tags are properly installed and collect data.
