Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I look at the Google Analytics Property page in Webmaster Tools (where you associate a Google Analytics web property with a Webmaster Tools site), I see a list of a bunch of properties with weird names. They are test properties from when we were trying things out years ago.

I can't view them or change their name in Analytics because they don't exist there. All their profiles were deleted years ago.

Is there a way to remove these from the list in Webmaster Tools? Or, alternatively, a way to view them again in Analytics so I can give them a better name, at least.

I know this doesn't matter in the big scheme of things, but I hate clutter.

There is currently no way to remove old, deleted, analytics setups from that list in Google Webmaster Tools.

This has been discussed on the Google Product Forums (also here). No solution has been found, and there is no official word from Google about this bug.

You could go to those forums and press the "Me Too!" button which might get the issue onto Google's radar a bit faster.

I don't see a "Me Too!" button. It seems both posts are closed due to inactivity. I guess I'm in the minority and will just have to live with it. –  toxalot Dec 2 '13 at 19:32
I added a screenshot with a red circle around the "Me Too!" button for you. –  Stephen Ostermiller Dec 2 '13 at 19:36
Nope. Don't see that. Do I have to join or anything? –  toxalot Dec 2 '13 at 20:10
Most likely. I'm logged in with my Google account. I did choose a screen name for the forums at some point. –  Stephen Ostermiller Dec 2 '13 at 20:54
I'm logged in to my Google account, and I can see a Post a Question button at the top of the Google Product forums, but no "Me Too!" button and no join button. Their site is really NOT user-friendly. –  toxalot Dec 2 '13 at 21:46
