No valid tracking code found for property .

em, how do i explain?

 

Since 5th January 2016 my Google analytic has not been tracking. total zero.

 

it came up with the notification - No valid tracking code found for property xx default URL xx Make sure your pages are tagged with a supported version of the tracking code

 

How did this happen?

 

Originally a year or so ago i set up the tracking code in the code somewhere and i have forgetton how i did that now....so today, i downloaded the google analytics by yoast  plugin and when I activated it - it had my UA already in it. so that is good.

 

But - this notification is still coming up - Missing Tracking Code

Page www.joanwalsh.ie/ for property Joan Walsh Website is missing valid tracking code.
 
??
 
Please advise.
and could anyone point to where I may have originally placed the tracking code in the editor in my wp dashboard cos i can't remember where that would be and i have been searching for the original youtube video that i would have used to do it and i can't find it. I need to find it to check it.
 
Plus i think I may have tried to verify something back in early January and it wouldnt verify for me...did this cause it. to be honest i can't remember the details.
 
thank you, joan

 

p.s i do not know if i am posting this in the right location (select a location)

Hi Joan :-)
The tracking script is installed fine with the plugin

 

I just checked again and it still gives me "Missing Tracking Code
Page www.joanwalsh.ie/ for property Joan Walsh Website is missing valid tracking code."

 

If you click on it. there should be an option/link just below the msg to Dismiss it.
Click it and dismiss it..it is a false error and can be ignored.
Because you are using this plugin, the analytics system doesnt see the installed tracking code.
It is a hiccup with the analytics checking system so can be ignored.

Hi Joan :-)

The tracking for Property UA-xxxxxx-1 is on your website.

Its being added via the yoast analytics plugin from what i can tell.

Reason the tracking code is not being seen the tracking code is because the plugin changes some of the code in the tracking code snippet
- it does this to follow best practices and not cause conflicts..so the plugin is correct to do this.

Just mark the notification as resolved and dismiss it.. or choose to ignore it
it is a false notification

Regarding verifying ownership of your website, you may have to use a different method such as the metatag option or similar
as the verification looks for the standard tracking code snippet and the plugin doesnt use the standard default snippet, so it
may not see it for site ownership verification purposes.

I don't if I fully understand you yet, but thank you for your reply Bronwyn.

Yes I added google analytics by yoast today to see if that would solve the problem.

Here is a screen shot of http://snag.gy/k9vKj.jpg showing the tracking had stopped since 5th Jan '16.

I had originally put my full tracking code in the php templates somewhere, a year and a half ago, but when i went looking today i could not locate it. and then I went ahead and added google ana by yoast and set that up.

I just checked again and it still gives me "Missing Tracking Code
Page www.joanwalsh.ie/ for property Joan Walsh Website is missing valid tracking code."

Thank you Bronwyn. It's back on track on - it is tracking my website again since yesterday. However the missing tracking button was there again this morning, i clicked 'check again'. but I will click 'ignore' if it comes up again. Pity i lost all the tracking from the 5th Jan until yesterday. Could I ask you a favour - could you edit out / delete my UA code in your first reply. Thanks so much. Joan

p.s i will look into the verification that you mentioned in your reply. i am sure i did do that ages back, but i know i was doing something else with verification and that's when something went funny...oh i can't remember Smiley Happy thank you.
