    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.

    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.

      You can check to be sure your property for HubPages is upgraded by looking at the JavaScript tracking code. Just click that link in your Google Analytics account under the HubPages property. If you see a reference to analytics.js in the code snippet, then you have been upgraded.  But if you see the old reference to ga.js then you are not upgraded. (No need to copy that snippet. HP puts that in for you once you confirm it).

      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?

            I never said ga means you are not upgraded. I said that ga.js means you are not upgraded. There is no reference to ga.js in the sample you gave.

          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?

    1. Glenn Stok profile image99

      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?

          Yes that's right. You're all done. Good job.

        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!
