The tracking ID is what I have brushed off with a red pen. As I said earlier, it is your secret ID. Do not reveal it to anyone especially within the online space. The code starts with a UA.
So to get the tracking code you basically log into your Google Analytics Account and head onto Admin which is a button the left pane.
Select Account and Property from the dropdown menu. Click on Tracking Info under Property.
Still under Property column>Tracking Info, click on ‘Tracking Code‘
You will now be able to view your unique Tracking ID (blurred in red) and Google Tracking Code. The Tracking ID starts with UA.
