While troubleshooting Google Analytics, have you ever wondered if the tracking code was installed correctly?
Getting “can’t verify” messages from Google?
Well, one of the first troubleshooting steps is to make sure you have the Google tracking code installed on the page you tell Google to check for it at.
One way to check to see if it the tracking code is present is to simply view the page in a browser and perform a “View Source”. Look toward the bottom of the page for the tracking code and make sure it has your unique tracking id in place.
However, I just came across another way of doing it using an Add-on for the Firefox browser. If you don’t already have Firefox, you may want to give it a try. It can co-exist with IE just fine and Firefox provides a more secure, faster browsing experience.
