I need a "UA-" ID

If you are using a website builder platform that requires you to enter a "UA-" ID and will not accept a "G-" ID, you'll need to set up a Universal Analytics property.

Find your "UA-" ID

Only Universal Analytics properties have a "UA-" ID.

  1. Click Admin in your Universal Analytics property.
  2. In the Property column, click Property Settings.
  3. Your "UA-" ID appears at the top of the Property Settings page.

Find your Google tag

The Google tag and "G-" ID are not the same.

To find your Google tag, do the following:

  1. Sign in to your Google Analytics account.
  2. Click Admin.
  3. At the top of the Property column, select your property.
  4. In the Property column, click Data streams > Web.
  5. Click the data stream for your website.
  6. Under Google tag, click View tag instructions.
  7. On the Installation instructions page, select Install manually:
    • On the screen, you’ll see the JavaScript snippet for your account's Google tag. Your Google tag is the entire section of code that appears, beginning with:

      <!-- Google tag (gtag.js) -->

      and ending with

      </script>
