Oops, You Can Still Add a New Site In Google Analytics

Some of you who already have a Google Analytics account may have noticed that Google has shut off the ability to add a new site profile in their interface as they handle capacity issues with so many new accounts being added.

However, if you view the source of your main Google Analytics page that lists your site profiles, you’ll see that the link to “Add Website Profile” is simply commented out in the HTML!

So, in order to add a new account, follow these instructions:

  1. View the source of the main profile listing page and search for “Add Website Profile” and right before that is the link to add it. It should look something like:

    admin?vid=XXXX&scid=XXXXX

  2. Take that link, and paste it onto the base URL which is:

    https://www.google.com/analytics/home/

Now you’ve got a new website profile to be added.
