Once you've correctly installed your tracking code, you should allow up to 24 hours for data to appear in your account.
If it has been more than 24 hours since you installed the tracking code and you're still not seeing any data, take a look at the list of possible reasons below.
- Incorrect filter settings
Incorrect filter settings can affect the data you see, and may unintentionally filter all of your data from your reports. This happens most frequently due to multiple Include filters.
- Viewing Incorrect Account
If you have access to multiple Analytics accounts, you may be looking at the wrong account. Please use the 'My Accounts' drop-down menu at the top right of the screen to sele the account you'd like to view.
- Using both Urchin software and Google Analytics
If you are using Urchin software in addition to Google Analytics to track your website, you may have both __utm.js and ga.js referenced from your pages. You'll need to update your pages to use the correct code.
- Using an Outdated Version of ga.js
If you are hosting the ga.js file locally, you may be using an outdated version of this file. You can download the most up-to-date version at http://www.google.com/analytics(click the "Check Status" link on theAnalytics Settings page to find the new code), but we recommend that you let Google host this file, as this ensures you have the most current version of the file.
- Interfering Scripts
Other scripts on your pages could be using some of the same variables as the ga.js file, and therefore interfering with the tracking code execution. If you're using additional scripts on your pages, consider moving the tracking code into the <head> section of the page. This way, the tracking code will work correctly, and it won't interfere with the rest of your scripts.
A note for Linux users: The Flash implementation for Linux can be very problematic, and users of Debian and Ubuntu seem to be especially affected. We're aware of these issues, but due to the lack of updates and Flash plugin development for Linux, we may be unable to support your browser and operating system combination at this time.
- Visits from China
Due to the way internet traffic is handled in China, some visits from China may be under reported in Google Analytics. While this issue is not unique to Google or Google Analytics, we do take the issue seriously and are working to find solutions. You can continue to use Google Analytics to analyze overall traffic trends and patterns for your site as the decrease has been proportionally consistent during this period.
