    All this month, there was a reminder to update something by August 20th, and I missed it and don't recall what it was for and now that reminder is gone. Can somebody tell me what it was, and if so, is there still a way to sign up whatever it was?

    I believe the reminder was for you to upgrade the Google Analytics account into a Universal Analytics account type. If someone else can confirm, that would be great.

      Thank you, I believe that's exactly what it was.

    Hi Alexadry, I wouldn't worry about it; apparently Google ended up updating everyone. I checked mine and it was done for me. There is a thread somewhere with instructions on how to check to see if your account was automatically updated. If/when I find it, I will post a link.

    Edit: calculus-geometry already posted the link, above.

    Google upgraded many analytic accounts, but you still need to complete the process on HubPages.  You can tell if you were upgraded to universal analytics by following this from Google support.

    For web properties: To find out if a web property is using Universal Analytics, sign in to your account and go to the Admin page. Select a property from the Property dropdown. A classic Google Analytics account will have an item in this column called Tracking Code. A Universal Analytics account will have an option called Tracking Info that includes sub-components called Tracking Code, Session Settings, Organic Search Sources, etc.

    Alternatively, you can check which JavaScript library your tracking code is referencing. To do so, click Tracking Code to see the tracking code snippet for a specific property. Look for ga.js or analytics.js referenced somewhere in the code. Classic Google Analytics properties reference ga.js and Universal Analytics properties reference analytics.js.

    Thanks for asking that alexadry.  Thanks for answering Paul…now I can see where I am at with all this…I believe I have some of it done.  Wondering about following each hub article as we go since I am just starting out.

    1.  Do we have to put code into each hub if we want to track each hub article individually?
    2.  If so where will it go in each hub article?  …I am learning as I go.

      No code is needed.  Just read this and see the portion on updating your HubPages settings - this is an account wide setting.

        Paul - If you guys would realize that many writers on HP are not also 'techies' (and I'm less techie than anyone), these instructions would be written for mere mortals to comprehend. When I read the bit about 'each web property', I had no idea whether that referred to my HP subdomain or every individual hub. Therefore, I didn't do anything. See how easy it is for a non-techie to become confused over instructions written by a techie?
