How long do destination goals take to be recorded?

I have just setup a destination goal and visited the destination multiple times in multiple browsers but the goal still shows 0 conversions.

 

How long does it take for goals to be recorded and populate GA with data?

Hi,

You should be able to see goal data in the Real Time -> Conversions report.
It can take 24-48 hours for the data to appear in the standard reports in Conversions -> Goals.

Hope this helps.

Awesome! Thanks.

Also if I might ask a follow up question.. does google analytics track the same goal multiple times per visit?

I found this page but it redirects before I can read the answer.. and I don't know if it applies any longer:

Hi,

A goal completion is recorded only once per a session. So if a user refreshes the goal destination page or he visits it again in the same session, only a single goal completion will be recorded.
