This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
What evidence do you have that another site is using your Analytics code? And even if someone else is using it, what makes you think it's affecting your stats without it being validated? –  Andrew Lott Apr 8 '13 at 12:38
    
Hi, validation is not an issue, you can try it once it, this can be done. Now, about two site using the same code please check - [link] (www.abcmachines.net) and [link](www.stronghold.in) the 2nd GA code used is same –  user1746106 Apr 8 '13 at 13:19

This is part of basic setup. All profiles should have this –  JamesRyan Apr 8 '13 at 15:39
    
Agreed, all profiles SHOULD have this, but in fact, they don't. Most users either don't understand this, forgot to set it up or simply don't care. –  DKOATED Apr 9 '13 at 9:03

This isn't possible because a) you have to validate that you own the url in order to use your GA code and b) the analytics are reported by url anyway so unless you are serving differing content on a given url one won't ever conflict with another.

James, you can add ANY Google Analytics Property ID to any site you have control over. I could add stackexchange.com's Property ID to my sites if I wanted to, spoiling stackexchange.com's metrics... –  DKOATED Apr 8 '13 at 15:03

except it doesn't spoil their metrics because it is filtered by url! don't you think google analytics would be useless if it was so easily tampered with!? –  JamesRyan Apr 8 '13 at 15:20
    
try it yourself. google does not pre-filter anything if you don't specifically set this up yourself. so, yes, Google Analytics is pretty useless if you don't know what you're doing and someone is tampering with your Profile IDs... –  DKOATED Apr 9 '13 at 8:59
