Hi I have installed Google analytics by Yoast…..WP says “google analytics is not active. you must select which analytics profile to track before it can work”.
I have selected ‘track outbound clicks and downloads’
I then ‘click’ to authenticate with google
This takes me to the google accounts page where i click ‘grant access’ to my google account and it always brings up the following message:
“unfortunately an error occurred while connecting to google. please try again”.
I have tried this numerous times over the last couple of weeks – checked all the settings, tried different times of day etc and still the same message. Any ideas as this is driving me nuts! All else going well just this tiny bit any help appreciated thanks sarah
You can do this manually through the plugin. On the plugin page (near where it says authentic with google) there is an option to add UA code. You get this code from you google analytics account and put in here. Then it will work :)
