  1. can i use google analytics in local host? i am trying to do it but the autheification of google account and wordpress is not working and i get this error "Google Analyticator was unable to authenticate you with Google using the Auth Token you pasted into the input box on the previous step.

    This could mean either you pasted the token wrong, or the time/date on your server is wrong, or an SSL issue preventing Google from Authenticating. is there a solution for that ??

  2. Top class tutorial and very straightforward and easy to listen to. Thanks very much.

  3. How do I copy the tracking code into my wordpress site? The config-line I have now copied….but in wordpress – I dont know where to insert it? I see you do it in the header – but my wordpress looks different today…..can you help?

  4. So can you still track analytics without downloading that plugin? Can you track traffic using only the end part of the video?

  5. I tried to do this, although when I search for google analytics it brings me to google “marketing platform”, and the entire page looks different. I’m able to navigate to analytics and click the “sign in to analytics” and the “start for free” buttons”, but they direct me to a window asking me to log in to my google account. When I try this, it tells me “admin.google.com is for G suite accounts only. Regular Gmail accounts cannot be used to sign in to admin.google.com”

  8. They removed the visitor map display from pro version did they not? Those bastards.

  9. When we have GA installed on our website, should we then create a new property for the associated Youtube Channel as well? So, we would end up having two separate UA numbers or Tracking ID's? Is that the proper way to do it? Thanks in advance!
