How To Check Google Analytics Is Working

Well, if you have more patience than me, you can set up your Google Analytics Tracking and wait 24 hours to start receiving data.  You can then figure out whether you’ve implemented it correctly by sifting through the statistics.

Or you can try scanning your site using SiteScan – which is a diagnostics tool for Google Analytics.
