Help! Analytics has stopped tracking my blog

Hi There

 

Google analytics seems to have stopped tracking my blog stats, I think this may be due to changing the template (however this has never happened in the past when i have changed it). I have the id in the box. I saw some comments regarding spam filters but I don't know where to look for that on my blog setup.

 

I really wanted to gather the data for April as its going to be my highest stats for the year (so typical this should happen now).

 

My blog is...suddenlykateshow.blogspot.co.uk

My tracking code is: UA-30650686-1

 

Many thanks

I've just checked your site and the GA tracking code seems to be firing fine. The UA ID seems to be correct as well. Are you looking at the right account and the unfiltered view in GA?

Do you have just one "view" and one "property", or do you have multiple properties/views?

Also, when the traffic stopped was it 100% immediate stop? Or did it just dramatically reduce?

It sounds like the change occurred at the same time as the theme was switched?

Tag is there, and seems to be firing. I'd generally suspect something on the Analytics setup side of things.

Since the tag is there and firing, the data must go to the specific property. Please doublecheck the property ID (UA-ID) by going to admin section > property settings that you're looking at the correct property.

I think the change did occur when I switched but it stopped 100% - I have checked and it looks like since posting this query it has started working again...but obviously I have no data for the 10 days previously Smiley Sad

I was looking at the right place Syed. It looks to have started again, so thanks for your help, but I am disappointed for the loss of data for the previous days. Cest la vie!
