Hi gang,

I went into the google analytics yesterday, It was telling me to seup a whole new account. (I had one already setup for a year, don't know what happened).

I noticed a few changes on its interface. I went through the steps as far as i could go, but in completion it didn't produce a 'tracking code'. (ex; UV______1)

I also in my backoffice dashboard, when I pull up the new AIOSEO, I notice it dosen't have a section/spot to put in the google analytics tracking code. (It gives me the option of 'upgrading' for a lot stuff, but I hope the 'google analytics' tracking location isn't one of them.)

My question now is' "how do we track our websites performance without a google analytics tracking code?"

Hi, I raised this in chat yesterday as I had the same issue. Apparently, you cannot create a tracker code anymore, but there´s something called stream instead.
Not sure if I did it correctly as I´m not seeing any data in GA yet, so I´d be happy to hear some more views on this too.

Yes, I saw that too. Did You get a 'measurement ID?' If so, where did you type it in?

Hi, I added the Global Site Tag (gtag.js) from GA to the header section in the Theme Editor in Wordpress. Hope this is the right way to do it.

don't add it directly to your theme header section as you will lose it the next time your theme is updated for security or compatability
the best way is to use ad inserter - headers and footers or another plugin or even hte all in one seo plugin and add it to the miscellaneous verification section
apparently analytify is coming out wiht a new update very soon and worth a look as you cannot add hte ignore logeed in users to the all in one any more as support has been dropped
i have created training on how to do this with your ip address in hte new ga4 accounts
have fun

Hi, Ronald
Simply give your measurement ID to site support and they will add it to your site.

Hi Phil, I had updated AIOSEO following your tutorial. Then I got an error message, went to check GA and found that my site was not verified. This is why I had to add the code again.

as i said if you add it directly to the head section you will be adding it every time you update your theme...
hopefully you are sorted now

Thanks for the info Phil. I will check, and if its not there I will ff to support.

I guess this would be the most simple way, hand measurement ID over to support. Did this work for you, FrankB?

Yes, I managed to recover the old code starting with UA. What about you?
