Help with correct tracking id

Hi I wonder if anyone can help me.

My google user id for my website doesn't seem to be working correctly - the analytic data is off. Analytics has my id as UA-50411182-1

 

Anyway I have been trying to troubleshoot and installed tag assistant. Now I went to my home page and the UA is showing as UA - 92988539-1

 

Can anyone check this for me so I can amend my UA if necessary - I dont want to mess things up...

 

Thankyou

Thanks :-)

I dont know if shopify adds it's own GA tracking to ppl's shops.. some places do like WIX or Vimeo etc

Are you referring to their help page on how to add analytics?
https://help.shopify.com/manual/reports-and-analytics/google-analytics/google-analytics-setup

 

If you go thru their instructions and there is nothing already setup in those settings I would just add your tracking id how it says as per that linked page and assume the other tracking id is their own tracking for their own business purposes.

I sent it up a few months ago and there seems to be some discrepancies.

When I installed the tag assistant to check the site was working correctly
thats when i noticed the different numbers. Are you able to tell me what
the correct id is for the site then?

Thank you

Have you had a different analytics account at any stage eg via a different google account login?
Tracking and reporting is tied together by the analytics tracking id.

 

Disregarding for a moment what you see in tag assistant.

If you go the shopify section where the tracking id gets added as per the shopify help page instructions i linked to above, is there any tracking id (UA#) entered into the specified field?

Hi - sorry for the delay in replying.

Yes We had another website before this one using the same URL

The Shopify preferences page shows UA-92988539-1 as my ID which is not what
have on analytics.

Best regards
