You've lost access to your Google Analytics account? Here's how to get it back.

If you are an admin and you have lost your account password or your Google Analytics admin has left your business, you will need to regain access to your Google Analytics account. You are not alone. Follow these steps.

Prove Site Ownership

Prove your site ownership by uploading an analytics.txt at your site root. Here's a description of what the file needs to contain.

Prove Linked Account Ownership

Gather proof of ownership information for any linked AdWords or AdSense accounts. Described here as well.

Submit Google Support Form

After you have your analytics.txt file uploaded and have your linked account ownership information, fill out and submit the Google support form.

Await Response from Google

You'll receive an email or phone call from your Google Support Specialist to follow up with you and help you resolve your access issue.

But his love for legos and creating things drove him to an education at DevMountain in Provo and a career in Web Development. He is a Google Analytics/MEAN stack ninja with a flair for UI/UX. Jake loves sports - especially English football. He also enjoys fishing, hiking and an occasional video game... who are we kidding with "occassional".
