    4/2/12 4:16:11 PM UTC Google Analytics Reverification failed. The Google Analytics tracking code on your site is in the wrong location. You can verify site ownership only with the asynchronous snippet placed in the <head> section of your home page. Learn more.

    You need to place the code in "eader:, not footer.

    Go to Appearance > Editor and then look for "header" or "header.php"

    You should paste the Google Analytics code right before </head>

  6. You may find that it really is easier to just use a Google Analytics plugin...

    This one has worked well for me in the past.

    Thank you very much Jan.
    I filled in the UA id
    and also yes to the Asynchronous Tracking:

    So no code is needed anymore i guess :)
    Why making it difficult if there is a simple solution.

    greetings

    You would have had to have pasted the code directly before </head>

    Great idea to use a plugin though. Makes life easier!
