Forward URL Tracking

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a URL - forwardurl.com that forwards users to the actual site, actualsite.com. I got some help setting up a report that would track any traffic coming from forwardurl.com but as of Feb 15, it has stopped working. Here is the error code Im getting:

 

The default URL http://forwardurl.com, for property UA-72175487-1has no tracking code for this property, although it does have tracking codes for other properties:

  • UA-69176316-1

If your Tracking ID and your Default URL setting are out of sync, you don't get valid data in your Analytics account for the Default URL.

Either update the tracking code to use the Tracking ID for property forwardurl.com, or open the Property Settings to update the Default URL for property forwardurl.com to be http://forwardurl.com.

 

What does this mean and how can I fix it?

How do you forward your visitors?
If it is just for forwarding I wonder why your forwarding page/site would have tracking code installed...

Can you open up the set up and what you are after with that?

This message inform you that tracking code for UA-72175487-1 property is installed on the other website than http://forwardurl.com.
Go to Admin tab and check "Default URL" in "Property Settings" section for UA-72175487 and UA-69176316 properties.

Are you using JavaScript or server side forwarding?

It is set up in our GoDaddy dashboard, so I guess that means server side.

We are using the GoDaddy dashboard to forward users to our actual site.

We are forwarding through GoDaddy's dashboard. There isnt an actual page that forwards, if users go to ForwardURL.com they are automatically redirected to the actual URL.

I assume server side? Its through the GoDaddy dashboard.
