I deleted an old account from Google Analytics but the tracking code is still showing up in my source file.  How or when is it removed?  I'v cleared my cache.

Hi,

Deleting an Analytics property will not remove the tracking code from your site; you need to remove it manually. Let me know if you have questions.

Hi,

It depends on how your site is set up. If you are using a CMS like Wordpress, you need to disable / delete the plugin that inserts the tracking code. If you have html files, you need to download the file(s) and delete the code snippet manually before re-uploading them. If you could post your site URL I would look into it for you.
