I had trouble setting up GA on one of my websites so I set up a very simple test environment with a new domain name and just a single page - the default page. Even in this simple environment I couldn't get GA to validate me.
My environment is as follows:
Site: www.example.com My default page contains the following:
I am 10000000% sure that the tracking code provided to me is the tracking code included in the above script. I simply copied and pasted the code block.
I've waited days after doing the config since I know it may take GA time, but certainly shouldn't take 3 days.
The old version of GA shows:
and the new version shows:
Note that the screenshot of the new version has the weird "December 1969" thing which I've read about in other forums and seems (?) unrelated to my problem.
How can I make this work?
