Tracking code that does not belong to me on some pages

On several pages of my site there is a tracking code that is not mine. When I use the Google Publisher tool it displays the tracking code and says I don't have access to this property. I don't understand how this code got into my site. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi :-)

Which one is your tracking ID?

The page you linked to has UA-199268-12 which is added via an iframe and belongs to the widget that is pulling in some info from an rss feed

 

UA-33258864-1 is installed incorrectly, as it is being added both via a plugin:
GADWP v5.1.1 Universal Analytics - https://deconf.com/google-analytics-dashboard-wordpress/

 

but there also appears to be another tracking code snippet added to the site pages, configured slightly, differently for the same tracking id.

 

Multiple copies of tracking code for the same tracking id will lead to incorrect data

Hi :-)

Are you able to provide a link to one of the pages in question so as one of us can check it via browser?
sometimes 3rd party services used on sites (eg vimeo) use their own tracking

Hopefully you will get this. It keeps coming back to me with temporary failure.

Thank you.
 
 
The page is my website, but the UA number is not.
 
Let me know what you think. 
Thanks again.

Thanks very much. My code is the second one. I now understand how to fix it. Kudo's!
