    Hi All,
    I'm bit of a newbie with WordPress..apologizes if I seem ignorant. I've installed my google analytics plugin onto my wordpress site, which appears under my Plugins tab and settings tab in wordpress. I've set up a google account and pasted my web property ID into the wordpress google analytics plugin settings page. When I access my google analytics page, I see a warning symbol underneath the status heading..and i have no activity on my site, not sure what I'm doing wrong?
    Any help would be much appreciated..
    thanks for reading,
    cs00102

    If you have just added the plugin and created your Google Analytics account then you may not get stats for your web site. It takes around 24 hours (I am not sure exact hours) for Google Analytics to generate the stats for your web site.

    I've had the plugin installed and setup for about 2 weeks now, and I'm still not seeing anything showing up in GA. Also, it appears the plugin is inserting the GA code multiple times.

    2 weeks and no stats...not good. Can anyone help?

    Hey, docdoug.

    Try this forum entry.

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/310659?replies=2

    I was having problems either. My Analytics profile started showing no visitors.

    On the other hand another web site of me which is on the same hosting package is working fine. That irritated me a lot.

    So to give it a try I deleted my Analytics profile for the problematic web page (which was unneccasary) and created a new one. Analytics didn't recognized the new tracking code for couple of days but after applying what's on that forum entry Analytics said it's waiting for data.

    Hopefully it will report my visitor results shortly. Afterwards I'll post some other experience of me.

    Hope this helps.

    I've heard this complaint more and more, it's something to keep an eye on but unfortunately not something I can fix...

    My analytics isn't working either. I've tried deactivating and reactivating. It's been weeks too. Any suggestions?

    Same problem with me. My Google Analytics still doesn't show statistics. It's been installed for days so it should be working.

    I'm also having trouble with Google Analytics recognizing my site. I think it might be I don't have'<?php wp_footer(); ?>' in the footer- from the looks of the posts above. Where do I put that code in my footer file? Sorry, I'm a bit new at all of this! Thanks :)

    Hello,

    Analytics is showing that reporting is on but I'm getting no data.. just 0 visitors. I checked my footer.php file and the above code is in there just fine.

    The plugin is working on 8 of my other sites just fine. I don't think my theme is causing the problem because I have the same theme on another site.

    May I e-mail you the url of my site so you can take a look?

    Thanks for the great plugin! I really mean that - I've used it for a long time now.

    Like cs00102, I am also having a similar issue--a yellow warning sign and no activity nor statistics noted. I've not waited the requisite 24 hours, but I have checked footer.php to find <?php wp_footer(); ?> already there. I shall wait until tomorrow before commenting further on this matter. I did notice, though, that I am unable to select placement of this code in the header even though it is in the drop-down menu. It always defaults to the footer as noted. I find this curious.

    As an update: this is now working for me. It seems it just takes several hours for the code to propagate. Thanks for reading!
