Google Tricks
You might think 'why would someone wish to hack me?' The most frequent reason is that spammers desire to inject false data in your website which will hopefully subsequently attract more traffic onto their internet site. Although this may seem like an unorthodox strategy to attracting customers these spammers will probably have horrific rankings so will try anything to gain traffic.

Google Do and Don't
Identifying the best way to protect your Google analytics data from being hacked will guarantee that your website statistics aren't corrupted and definately will continue to show reliable data without worry of spammed results. Corrupting Google Analytics data couldn't be easier; luckily protecting yourself from false data is also very easy. You should make sure that you are protected from corruption immediately and not assume that your website will be overlooked. After the data is corrupted no one is able to fix the damaged data. Because Google analytics collects raw data constantly fat loss to reverse the way that the data has already been collected. Therefore any data that was collected whilst there was a corruption can be void for any use.

Google analytics account receives data from many website. For example if you need to collect data from Two or more websites but are looking for access to the data in a single consistent location then what you need to do is use the same property ID for the websites.

Now to find your house ID or you're tracking code it may need you to first go on to your website. From here either press the options tab in the top right of your browser, navigate into tools and click page source (through the Chrome, other browsers may well not put it under tools) or just press Ctrl + U. When you're viewing the page source press Ctrl + F that may bring up a mini find bar similar to that in Ms word. Type into the finder "ga.js", this may now show you what your tracking code is (only when you are registered with Google analytics).

A number of you will be collecting data from your number of domains purposely. For example, you wish to merge data from a company which operates internationally but uses different domains. Whilst websites like these may technically count separate websites the data could be collected as one so the business can be represented as a whole rather than each being multiple entities.

Whilst protecting crucial computer data is a fairly obvious notion it really is strange how many people either feel that they could never be hacked or they only never thought about it. Google Analytics makes strategy tracking very easy and lets you ascertain the effectiveness of an advertising strategy. This data would obviously become completely useless in case your data becomes corrupt. Imagine the wasted time, money as well as of setting up a marketing strategy and you then find out how the data that you collected doesn't let you know your advert actually generated any traffic.

To protect your Google Analytics from being hacked all you want do is create simple filters with your Google Analaytics account. These filters is only going to include traffic on your own domain but will therefore protect you from any data corruption. What this essentially does is define your site within the filter so protects you having your tracking ID copied.
