    It keeps telling me there is an error occurring when I try to authenticate with Google.

    I have my Google Analytics account open.

    Any ideas why?

    Did you ever figure out what was wrong? I'm having the same problem.

    There's an option to manually add the UA-xxxxxx code. I recommend you try that.

    Same problem with me.

    I used firefox and ie explorer, multiple versions.
    It does not show the analytics selector, nor does it provide me the option to fill in the UA code manually!


    I get a blank page afterwords..

    Any suggestions?

    I see this code on my source page

    <!-- Google Analytics tracking code not shown because users over level 8 are ignored -->

    Does anyone know what this means?

    That just means that you won't see the Google Analytics code while logged in since it's set to not track logged in users with a certain permission level. So if you want to manually verify that the code is working you should logout (or visit from a different not logged in browser) and view source to see the code.

    I get the following error after clicking to authenticate with Google and granting access in the popup: "Unfortunately, an error occurred while connecting to Google, please try again:Re-authenticate with Google."

    Where do we find the UV code to enter it manually?

    have the same problem. I think because its just updated to version 3.4

    its sad that yoast didnt made any update i also will pay for it because it was a good plugn.

    I keep getting:

    Unfortunately, an error occurred while connecting to Google, please try again:Re-authenticate with Google.

    Just above that, when I click on the red text to "select which analytics profile to track" it does not link to anything, just refreshes the page. I do have a Google Analytics account opened....

    I could try to enter the code manually as it was provided when I created the analytics account but I'm not technical and don't know exactly WHERE to copy and paste the code. Does anyone have any direction to offer here?

    Thanks so much,

    How to Manually enter your Google Analytics tracking ID

    In the WordPress Admin Panel, on the left sidebar menu, select
    Settings > Google Analytics

    On the Google Analytics configuration page, in the upper left is a checkbox with small grey text that reads:
    Manually enter your UA code

    Check the checkbox and the line above it should change from having a button to authenticate with Google Analytics, to having a text field with the "Manually enter your UA code" text next to it.

    Copy your ID
    Example: UA-12345678-1
    from Google Analytics "tracking info" tab, and paste it into this field. Then click the blue button in that is in the lower right corner of this settings box labeled:
    Update Google Analytics Settings

    Once you have saved the ID to the plugin, visit your Google Analytics tracking info page again, and refresh the browser. You should see:
    Status: Tracking Installed

    If you do not, give it a minute or two and refresh again. You should be good. Hope this helps!

    I really wish Yoast would either fix the automatic connection issue, or remove the option so it is not so confusing. If it is a situation where the option still works but only for some people, then I suggest it is set the other way, with a checkbox to enable automatic connection, but the default being manual.
