Google analytics still isn't up and running

    It's been several days now, and the status tracker still says there is no cold on my pages.  Why?

    Might be worth double-checking that you've entered your Tracking ID correctly into your Hubpages Affiliate Settings page.

    It should be in this format: UA-123456-7.

    It's in the right format, and showing as active.  I am still getting no stats.  I don't have any idea what I've done wrong.  It's still saying they can't find the tracking code.

    The fact that it says active in your affiliate settings on HubPages does not necessarily mean that you've entered the correct id.  We don't have any way to verify them, we just put them into the page if they look reasonable.

    You can check that you have the right code easily enough.

    1. Starting on the main analytics page, click "Edit" under Settings for hubpages.com.
    2. After clicking "Edit" you should see a link in the upper right that says "Check Status".  Click that and you'll see a "Legacy Tracking Code", which is a small snippet of javascript.
    2. Verify that the UA number there matches what you've entered here at HubPages (which is: UA-338661-0).

    I've never seen an analytics code that ended in -0 (usually it is -1 -2 -10 -11, etc.).   So I think it is possible that you made a typo.

      is this a complete analytics code?   I have no -1 or anything at the end.

    Paul, as usual, you were right.  My bad.  Sorry.  Hate to make you do double work to put it back on right.  I have the right code now.
