Google Analytics

I put Google Analytics in my site. I have visited it several times since. It's a Wordpress site

Google Analytics shows no one has visited my site, EVER.

Is there some kind of directions that tell you how to properly look at the results?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's not an immediate thing.  Assuming you added the code correctly, it can still take up to a day for the first results to appear.

Are you caching the site?  Did you clear the cache after adding the code?

To Jason C. Levine,

How can I tell if I'm "caching" my site?

No, not the browser.  If you are using something like WP Super Cache, changes to the theme may not show immediately.

1. Do you have a caching plugin installed?  If yes, force it to rebuild the cache.

2. Check page source code and make sure GA code appears.

In GA, if you got to the admin section (where you can copy the code) it should also tell you if the property is currently receiving data.

I looked in the source code, the GA code is there.

Okay, so check the GA property settings to see if it is reporting data received.  You can also check the Real Tine reporting while accessing site in another browser to see if that is working.

You're not caching your site, I see the code in your footer, wait until tomorrow and you will see the stats populating.
