Can anyone explain the Google analytics update in layman's terms, such as in "Google Analytics Upgrade for Dummies"?
I felt the HubPages blog post did a credible job, especially as they walk you thru the process if you need to still do it.
http://blog.hubpages.com/2014/06/its-ti … s-account/
Yeah, I tried, but the screenshot they showed on the blog is not what showed up when I clicked on the link. :-(
It doesn't give me the Universal Analytics Upgrade option as shown in the screenshot. It just starts with the next category: Property Settings, then User Management, etc . . . . Anyone know why? Is it already upgraded?
I had the same situation. It turned out that my HubPages property, as well as my other domain properties, were already upgraded by Google automatically.
Once you determine that you are definitely upgraded, then all you need to do is confirm it in HubPages by going to "My Account > Earnings > Settings > Analytics" and click confirm.
Thanks, Glenn. I just need a bit more information for a computer dummy like me. What do you mean by the "Hubpages property"? Do you mean to go under my HP account and click on the Google Analytics link? Where do I look for the code and the ga.js? Where is the Java Script tracking code??
It has analytics. js but then ga also. What does that mean?
If you have more than one domain then each one is considered a property. I have several web sites, so each has to be upgraded individually at the property level as explained in the blog.
If you only use Google Analytics with HubPages, then that will be the only property you have in your Analytics account.
Log into your Analytics account. Click the HubPages property. Then under that you will see the link to display the code snippet. This property level is the same place where you were looking for the blue upgrade link, which is missing if you are already upgraded.
,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga'); Okay, Glenn, I found this. Does this mean I'm not upgraded?
Look closer. It has the reference to analytics.js so you ARE upgraded. Now just confirm it with HP so HP knows to place the new snippet in your hubs.
Okay, cool! Thanks, Glenn! That's what was confusing--when we're already upgraded! I checked in my HubPages account that I'm using Universal Analytics. (changed from no to yes) Is that what I needed to do?
Oh, this is all helpful to me, as I am computer dummy too. Will follow your instructions and see. Thanks so much!
This just confirms that I belong to the legion of computer dummies too. This all sounds Greek to me. I better read this thread over, and translate it into English.Heheh!
Oh, my! Thanks Glenn for the enlightenment!
Thanks. Good job to you, too. :-) I appreciate your help.

My affiliate code is preceded by a "UA". Does that mean it was automatically upgraded? Do I need to do anything else before the Aug 20 deadline. This whole process is very confusing.

I am trying to do a google analytics account upgrade... When I select the account hubpages.com and then the property http://hubpages.com I don't see any link that says Universal "Analytics Upgrade" Am I doing something wrong? How do I resolve this issue so I can do the upgrade?

Hi there! Tried setting up my google analytics account earlier but I got stuck in the Property Set-up Section. The error said that "default URL is invalid" (attached snip shot). Any idea how to fix this? Thanks!
