But if you know about Google analytics and you are very certain Google analytics is collecting data for your site,here is what you should do to make sure everything is working.

Google introduced a tag assistant recording, Google Tag Assistant Recordings is an instant validation, diagnosis, and data troubleshooting tool. Google Tag Assistant Recordings lets you


  1. Validate your website and analyze your Analytics implementation.
  2. By recording a critical user flow, you can find and correct problems that, left unattended to, can lead to inaccurate or corrupted data in your Analytics properties and views. 
  3. Google Tag Assistant Recordings can also be used to review your tags across other Google products, such as AdWords, DoubleClick and Tag Manager
If you dont have this too installed,then there is no way to be sure if your analytic properties and views are accurate.



Google does a more than just record your site information,If  a typical user flow might start with a user searching the web for your product, then clicking a resulting paid ad or organic (unpaid) link that takes that user to your site. The user may browse your product catalog, add an item to a shopping cart (which might be hosted on a different domain), review their order, provide shipping and payment information, click a Submit Order button, and finally, return to your site’s Thank You page, where you record a Goal completion.

Google Tag Assistant Recordings enabled, each of these pages is part of the recording, even those that are not part of your site or that are constructed dynamically (such as the shopping cart’s Review Order page). For each page in the flow, Google Tag Assistant Recordings conducts a number of tests and gathers information on the results, which it will report to you when the recording is finished. Google Tag Assistant Recordings reports only include the data collected by your own flow; they won’t be cluttered with information from other users’ activities.

  3. Google Tag Assistant Recordings is currently available in English only.
