How to reset my Google Analytics Account?

Last Update: March 10, 2021

So on the 2nd March I was having difficulty with AIOSEO and requested some help. For which I am grateful as I managed to move forward a bit further.

Following Phil's training, I believe I was ultimately successful in what went in my site(s) header, and my 3 sites were verified on Google Search Console so I'm sure that I did something right.

However, 8 days later and I'm in the dark as I have no stats in Google Analytics , so I have obviously done something incorrectly.

I really think I should start again from scratch on on the Analytics account, but does anyone know how to delete everything in Goggle Analytics and then start the process again?

Basically, I have my account name, and under that I have a bunch of properties for the 3 sites. But one property I deleted so it has a line through it, but later I realised it was correct so I recreated it. But 2nd time it has a UA- code while another has GA4 on the property name.

I think I have mixed up the gtag option with something else so I really need to go back to a clean canvas. Then I will paste the new and correct tags into my headers.

I would be grateful for best suggestion on doing that reset on my google analytics account or just delete the properties that are already there.

Thanks

Michael

Thanks everyone for the comments.

My stats hadn't worked for the entire 10 days but it seems I pasted the wrong bit of code in my sites. Something to do with Standard Analytics and GA4 analytics.
Google Support suggested I stick with the standard option. And I was shown how to delete the existing properties so I can recreate them later.
I further complicated my own setup because unknowingly, I had previously used one of the domains in a different google account already. So I have shut down that old account.

Google Support are willing to help you set up your analytics (or fix them as in my case) for free, if you have a google adwords account.

Thanks again for the advice and comments.

I don’t have much experience but I am wondering if somehow you are mistaken. It doesn’t make sense that this just happened because it seems like things were functioning.

Hi Max,

I think it will take a good week until it gathers your site's data. Based on my own personal experience, I had to wait a good one week or may be even 10 days until there were some data gathered in it.

To me it looks you did everything right and only 3 days are not enough. I think you should allow it some more time until it collects data.

I hope it helps,

Meena

It took me more than that, Meena, before I got any data. I also thought I was wrong and then went for Monster Insights lol. Anyway, it is working now

I had the same issue and contacted site support to change the gtags so they were the same as the added one for me and it didn't match the ID I had on my account.
