Has anyone ever seen this happen - analytics has stopped tracking BUT when you view source, the GA code appears to be installed correctly
  (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
  ga('create', 'UA-36673257-1', 'auto');
  ga('send', 'pageview');

Any insite would be helpful

Does anyone know how a site might become "unverified" in GWT?  One day the verification file is there and the next day it is not?

GTM question:

I am trying to get the following script to fire within GTM using the custom HTML tag facility in GA.

it is not firing..... i know the rule and container are fine so its definatly the tag. The tag is an adobe tracking pixel, do these two things not play nicely together or do i need to alter the tag in someway to get it to fire.

here is the tag(with some x's everywhere obviously).


<script language="javascript" src=""></script>
<script language="javascript">
var ef_event_type="transaction";
var ef_transaction_properties = "xxxx=<xxxx&ev_transid=<transid>";
* Do not modify below this line
var ef_segment = "";
var ef_search_segment = "";
var ef_userid="xxxxx";
var ef_pixel_host="";
var ef_fb_is_app = 0;
var ef_allow_3rd_party_pixels = 1;
<noscript><img src="<xxx>&ev_transid=<transid>" width="1" height="1"/></noscript>

So then.

Why is it that in GA sometimes Twitter/Facebook others is in my stats as a source and sometimes a medium. What is the difference?

When these come through as a source the medium is always a referral rather than social 

i have ruled out device type(eg mobile vs desktop) and have umm run out of ideas already.

We have 1 x main web site (our HQ, we are a Backpacker/ hostel group ) and 4 venue locations with their own independent web sites with more to follow. We presently only post on this main web site but would like to link the posts via Wordpress 'SNAP' to each of our venue sites will this be bad for SEO? as the content is obviously the same.

We also show on the location web sites guests pictures and their reviews, as the format is the same each week (the pictures, reviews and the intro/announcement change each post) does this help in our SEO or hinder?

I do hope these questions are not that dumb and thank everyone in advance for any help you may give.
