Google Analytics not working. Help.....

Google Analytics is asking for me to place the tracking script before the in the header. The directions on the Yola help center say to add the script to the bottom of the page. I did this and Google Analytics says it cannot verify the code. Does anyone know how I can get the script into the header before the closing tag ?

This test is directly from the Google Analytics site. "Copy the following code, then paste it onto every page you want to track immediately before the closing tag."

Did Google change where this code should be place or has it always been like this?

Hello WPlotkin

I'm sorry to hear that you're having some difficulty in getting your Google Analytics to work.

You do need to follow our instructions for adding Google Analytics to your page - which means posting the code into the HTML Widget and placing it at the bottom of your page.

If you are having trouble with Google Analytics not tracking your website, there are a few reasons this might be happening:

1. Have you republished your site? You must republish your site in order for any changes you have made to take effect. To do this click on the green "Publish to the web" button.
2. Have you copied the complete code provided by Google Analytics and pasted it into an HTML Widget?
3. When did you add Google Analytics to your site? It takes 24 hours for data on your site to be available in your Google Analytics account.

Please see this link on Google's Support Page: Why isn't Google Analytics tracking my website? for more information. You can also take a look at our tutorial for more information: Adding Analytics.

Also, just to let you know we have recently added Site Traffic statistics in your Yola account!

* Free and Bronze users can see the number of visits to their websites over the last 7 days.
* Silver users can see the number of visits and the number of unique visitors (also known as first-time visitors) to their websites over the last 30 days.

To see this feature, log in to and click "Site traffic" on the left. You'll see a graph of your website traffic. Put your mouse on the graph points to get the exact date and number of visits. You can also easily change between your different sites with the site selector at the top right corner.

If you need any further assistance, please let me know.
