Magento: Solution for Google Analytics not tracking website

I had an old version of Magento. I had enabled google analytics tracking from Magento admin. But, google analytics was not tracking my webshop.

i.e. COPY /app/code/core/Mage/GoogleAnalytics/Block/Ga.php

– Open the file


– Go to line 171
