Google Analytics - How Do I Remove A Threshold?

Last Update: October 06, 2014

How Can I Resolve This Issue?

This is a screenshot of my GA Demographics Overview with the yellow information bar stating that a threshold has been applied:

I have not been getting any Demographic data in my Google Analytics for some time.

Having upgraded to Universal Analytics a long time ago, I thought this data would appear automatically.

I was using Yoast's GA plugin, but removed it, and have since placed (on 7 Sept 2014) the code into my Theme Settings Header script section of my Genesis theme, as such:

Can anyone advise me as to what I may have done wrong or how I can solve the problem?

Or does it take a week or two to see results?

Thank you kind community!

Now getting data, but why is a threshold still being applied?

Any ideas anyone?

A LOT of the time Google actually doesn't have demographic data on their audience, hence why you would not be seeing it very much within your account. People need to have a Google + account and need to be logged in when searching your website in order for this data to appear.

If none is showing, it could be something relating to your Yoast plugin. I personally use All in One SEO to manage this and it works like a charm.

Hi Kyle, thanks for chipping in!

I am getting demographic data now, but the yellow sash stating that a threshold has been applied is still there. I have removed all filters, although I only had a few excluding my IP addresses.

On looking at my other site's data, this threshold is not there at all! It seems something is filtering out data? I'm just intrigued to know if it is a filtering process or what?

This is a fairly advanced question. You might consider using the "My Question" option at the top of your profile rather than "My Blog" option. I get the sense that our more senior members are more tuned in to specific questions than general blogs.

Final option might be a "Support Ticket". Hope you get it resolved.

Thanks Dennis, will try that. I'm running tests in GA at the moment but it takes days to gather results!

I wish I had the answer. I have had nothing but trouble with Google Analytic s. Bing stiemap sailed right on through, the same sitemap Google refuses, I have wasted so much time with that; I know it is necessary but I have had to move on. Another words I am so disgusted I have given up on that for now and moved on. (Wasted over 2 weeks trying to get it to work.)

Mine went totally opposite, Google went fine, still working on Bing.

Thanks both Linda and Kim. My overall Analytics has been fine, it's just getting the demographic data that's stumped me.

I know the feeling of wasting time trying to solve pesky little issues - seems to happen all the time with IM, doesn't it?

I am just guessing now but to me it sounds like something in setting you did when setting it up. I don't know if this will help you: In your google analytics, if you use the help button. When I use it a new window opens with a lot of help topics.

I'm trying loads of different things, but I have a feeling it could be to do with Filters.
