I signed up for google analytics a while back and under status I have an orange triangle with an exclamation mark in it. What does it mean?

I clicked on it numerous of times, but hovering over it told me that the Tracking is Unknown... how do I solve that and what IS tracking according to Google Analytics?

Did you add the tracking code on your pages?

Yeah you need to add the javascript tracking code onto the pages you would like to track.

If the tracking code is in place, which it looks like it is to me, it means either there's no visitors with javascript/etc enabled sending Google traffic information, or that you've modified the tracking code in a way that causes a silent javascript error that's preventing the script from running and sending data.

If there's any other javascript errors on the page, they too can prevent the tracking code from working properly.

I don't know what it is... it's all there... the only thing I modified is changing:
Code: [ Select ]
 
<script type="text/javascript">
var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">
try {
var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("UA-6794118-1");
pageTracker._trackPageview();
} catch(err) </script>
 
  1.  
  2. <script type="text/javascript">
  3. var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
  4. document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "google-analytics.com/ga.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
  5. </script>

Don't modify it; copy and past it exactly as it's given.

Yes, I did. You can go check if I did that correctly, although I'm pretty sure I did. It may be some setting or option I might have forgotten in the Google Analytics pages or something I might have overseeing. I'm probably going to contact Google about this.

About the second link:

1. My tracker is correct.
2. I haven't messed with the filters
3. I only have one account
4. I'm only using Google Analytics... no urchin
5. I will try moving the tracker to <head> section (after 24 hours)
6. Javascript is enabled and Flash is updated
7. ...
