Hi @Sanna V :-)

What is your tracking id for GA? UA-31499106-1?

There is tracking id for UA-31499106-1 installed twice.
One lot seems to be in the site <head></head> section as expected.
Another copy seems to be placed into a text widget which is adding it as text instead of script.


I would start by removing the extra copy of the tracking code in the text widget.
