View old analytics data

I have recently taken control of a site and changed webserver. It had analytics enabled, but a Web user had changed the analytics code on the site and now it's only showing the data from when the new analytic code was added to the site. Is there a way I can look at the previous analytics data prior to this being changed.

The only way to see the old data is to regain access to the analytics account that was used prior to the change. There is a nice step by step guideline in the below post -

Thanks for that, I have read through it and it appears that the UA has not changed. but when viewing the analytic data its only showing the last 2 weeks. Is this due to the server change!

If the UA hasn't change, the old data must be in the same property but maybe in another view. Check the other views in this property i.e. unfiltered / all website data and so on. You can see how many views you have for this property by clicking on the 'Admin' on the top nav of the reporting console and then clicking on the views dropdown (which is the 3rd column on the next screen) for this property.

Hi David,

Looks like you're looking in the Google webmaster tool (search console). You need to check your property in Google analytics. Visit the link below to sign up / login to your Google analytics acocunt.

Hi David you are in Google Search Console not Google Analytics - also may i commend you on having data going back to 'prehistoric' times Smiley Happy most of us didnt start tracking until the 1990's / 2000's
