In every web property in your Google Analytics account, you can see the Tracking Status, which tells you if your tracking code is working or not.
- Sign in to your Analytics account.
- Navigate to the property to which you added the tracking code.
- Click Tracking Info > Tracking Code.
- Review the tracking code status message. Near the tracking ID (UA-XXXXX-XX), you’ll see one of the following status messages:
Waiting for Data - The tracking code has been detected on the homepage of your website, and the Google Analytics servers are updating your configuration before your data can be processed and appear in your reports.
Tracking Not Installed or Not Verified - The tracking code isn’t set up correctly on your webpages.
Receiving Data The tracking - code is collecting and sending data to your property. You can still use the other tools, like the Google Analytics Debugger, to do a more in-depth analysis or to troubleshoot your setup.
Unknown - There's no data available that Google Analytics can use to tell if your tracking code is working. Check your setup to see if you can find a solution.
Install and use the Google Analytics Debugger extension (Chrome browser extension) and Use your browser's View Page Source feature to find the tracking code.
If you use Google Tag Manager to manage Google Analytics tracking, you won't be able to verify that tracking has been installed by viewing the page source. This is because you'll only see a
container snippet, not the tracking code itself.
