Wrong tracking code entered

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I'm setting up a GoDaddy website and it asks for the Google Analytics Tracking ID in this format: UA-XXXXX-XX but my ID is in this format UA-XXXXXXXX-X.

So the site is rejecting it. Does anyone know how to correct this or what I am doing wrong?

 

Thank you.

 

Fran

Thank you, Olgierd. I was entering the tracking ID in the correct place but it didn't accept it. I tried shortening the ID and it did accept it. I'll have to check to see if it works once the site is launched.
