    I would guess G. support is the place to go for help.
    Did you try Google first?

    I had the same issue but what I did,

    I just update the code on right location and it starts working again. So you should also do correction and do paste the code on right place to fix the issue.

    If it's placed in the right spot it will be tracked.

    There might be different reasons such as duplicate GA code on your page that might appear as the result of using different plugins, or just any mistake in GA code. Check if there is the one and only correct GA code on your website.

    A major cause of this is making changes to the Tracking Code position. Which you admittedly did. Now, since you're saying that you've placed it back. You need to wait it out.
    Until then make sure these 3 probable issues are ruled out:
    1. No multiple versions of Google Analytics plugins are running at the same time
    2. make sure all the GA plugins (if multiple) have the same GA ID
    3. Google Analytics Tracking Code might be present at multiple locations

    Hope it helps!

    You should place GA code at head tag on page of your website. Then it will track your website. Apart from it you should recheck GA code while pasting.

    Along with me, many one has experienced with this kind of problem....
    It may be due to multiple versions Google Analytics running or may be you have mentioned the tracking code at multiple location...

  • Google Analytics is the most popular tool you can use to measure those visitors. You shouldn't use a tool because it is popular, though. Google's tremendous cloud infrastructure allows them to rip through very large data sets rather quickly. They want to use data to make informed business decisions.

    Google Analytics and explain several basic concepts about the tool, including:

    What is Google Analytics and why is it mission-critical for your business?
    How does Google Analytics work?
    What are the distinctions between metrics and dimensions on Google Analytics?
    What kind of data are available on Google Analytics, and what you can do with them?

    its might be reason that wrong track id in the pages uses or you missed some parts of id so check your id or get new id nd add in the site. follow rules and guidelines of google analytics

    here few reasons which may cause of this issue:
    Setting in Google analytics may be incorrect.
    Google webmaster set-up May be inorrect.
    It could be tracking the wrong domain.

    After applying the filters for spam website my GA works fine. But after few months it stopped tracking my website. Again after i removed the filters it started tracking. Is there any time period to apply filters in GA ?.

    in case if your using a wordpress website the add a plugin header and footer add the code to the header and try if it works . Also adding the code to the header the code will be applied to all the pages of the website.

    There is just only one reason. Your GA code is missing something. So again post it on right place.

    you don't have to use any plugin for google analytics.you should directly create code and paste code in your website.

    If you have not already done so, create a property in Google Analytics. Create one Analytics property for each website you want to track. Creating a property generates a tracking ID, which you'll use in your gtag.js tracking code snippet.

    Find your tracking ID, as described below. You'll use this tracking ID in the tracking code snippet.
    Copy and paste the gtag.js tracking code snippet to each web page you want to track. Add the tracking code snippet right after the opening <head> tag on each page.

    Find your tracking ID
    To find the tracking ID:

    Sign in to your Analytics account.
    Click Admin.
    Select an account from the menu in the ACCOUNT column.
    Select a property from the menu in the PROPERTY column.
    Under PROPERTY, click Tracking Info > Tracking Code. Your tracking ID is displayed at the top of the page.
