    I have a multi author blog and I wanted to show following data to my authors about their posts in their respective account: 1. Post views 2. Avg. Session durations. Also I want a date filter. How could I achieve this? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Hogan. In my GA account I have a message saying my tracking code is missing. Then I go to the code and it's a script code and not the one shown on your video? Thanks.

    If I have one domain name but a website on main and then a different website on a subdomain and it tells me that website is already added not accepting that subdomain site, does that mean both sites will be tracked as I have them on different property views on analytics?

    There is also an easy way to block your own IP from Anaylitics by creating a filter within Analytics itself. That way you can access your site on any browser and it won't interfere with your data. And it won't require you to install anymore browser plugins.

    Hi Hogan,

    Recently, I moved my blog from http to https. I had setup the GA account and its plugin on my blog too. I changed the settings today in the GA. Logged into admin of my GA Account, went to property settings, changed the default version (from http to https) and one more setting. Is it right? Do I need to make any changes in my WP Admin dashboard in GA plugin?

    Thanks 🙂

    @4:00 you selected your website in General Settings. How do I add a website in order to select it?

    Hi Hogan, Thank you, Great tutorial.
    Do you know if analytics starts working right away?, or do I have to wait a day or two for the data?
    The only "problem" I have is that I can't find a working blocker for safari. The one you suggested in the video is not supported until further notice 🙁

    Great advice! Thanks for reminding me to block my own views. That got me falsely excited on my last website haha.
