Common issues when verifying with Google analytics

Google Analytics code not visible on main domain 

Google Analytics code is hidden in call back or missing from the root of the domain you added. If this is the case, consider using another method to verify or contact us at

Google Analytics domain is different from the domain you entered manually

A small difference between the domain you entered manually and the domain registered in Google Analytics can cause your verification to fail. Make sure to double-check the spelling and format (e.g. with or without subdomains) of the domain you added to your Detectify account.

Google tag manager or other Google products

Verification can fail if you are using Google Tag Manager or another Google product to connect your site to Analytics. If this is the reason verification has failed, try using another method to verify.
