    Each time I setup a new property in Google Analytics for Hubpages, I receive a tracking number that starts with G-xxxx.

    Then when I try to enter that number in Hubpages, I receive an error message that I should be entering a number with UA-xxxxxx.

    I've tried this several times, following all of the instructions in "How to Set Up Google Analytics for HubPages."

    Please help!

      It doesn't work. Matt says HP is working on it or something like that.

        Thanks Kenna,

        Yes, the Support Team has informed me that they are working on implementing GA4 with HubPages. 

        Again, thanks for your quick response.

    TAG never updated HubPages to support GA4. It’s seems they don’t care enough about HubPages' users. It takes just five minutes for the web development team to install the code Google provides for GA4. I know because I did it with my author website.

    Besides that, Google does have a workaround, using the old UA-xxxxxx tracking, for platforms that never updated to support GA4. However, its reporting options are not as efficient as it used to be.

      I have stats for my GA4 property for Hubpages, but are they based on a default property that Google made? I'm getting real-time data and trends. However most of the useful information that was available with the UA property is no longer provided, or at least I haven't figured how to get the reports to mimic the way they used to be, so I don't use GA anymore.

        You’re right Eugene, the reports are different from the the UA version. Even using the workaround to make GA4 work with the original UA tracking code, is not as great as it used to be.

    Has anyone here seen the hubpages blog updated lately? It's a sorry read.

    I was using UA analytics years back. But I removed it when Google updated to GA4. I had no use of it at all. The statistics reports already provide enough information for you. You can know which browsers visit your site, which country viewers top your audience, and through which OS platforms.

      All true, but Google Analyics shows additional info, such as the city people are in, the titles of the articles visited, and even shows real-time access.

      The only issue I have with GA4 is that the real-time view is not as good as it used to be with UA where I could watch readers come and go.

    They also tell you through which keywords they come to you or through which links.
