I have just registered by hub page with Google analytics and received a tracking number that starts with UA.
Does this mean that I am automatically registered under universal analytics?.
Yes, Google/hubpages have automatically done it for accounts that have opened within the last 12 months so the newcomers and many older ones with a UA account need not upgrade.
OMGosh Word -- if this is true you just relieved me from a lot of stress. I always find Google instructions are written for techs, not normal people. Thanks !
Ah thanks for this feedback, appreciate your prompt response. I felt a little foolish trying to upgrade but did not see the upgrade prompt - so spent half the evening wondering what I was doing wrong. Finally plucked up the courage to ask - now I feel a fool for not just asking to begin with. Note to any newcomers. It's better to ask than waste vaiuable time. There are such good and kind and helpful people like words55 on HP.
Don't feel foolish at all Raine, the time you spent has helped thousands of others who've been trying to figure out the same thing. Even I, one day was spinning trying to figure it out when I was like, duh, the UA number is already there. Duh!!! :-)

Hi everyone! I have a quick announcement about the Universal Analytics upgrade that should hopefully clear up any remaining confusion. As lobobrandon pointed out, Google started auto transferring users to UA sooner than planned, and most— if not all— of you were already moved over. I...

You may have noticed that the stats button on your hub now says "stats disabled" and that your total hubs views are not moving up. We had a hardware failure on one the servers that we use to record and process the millions of views we get a day. We are working to restore the...

I use analytics for all my websites but I would like to track only unique visitors. Is there a way to tell analytics not to track my personal IP? You can do that with Blogger so I figured there may be a way to do that with analytics a well.
