If you haven’t yet, you’ll want to confirm that you don’t have any other trackers installed on your site as these may interfere with proper tracking. (You can use the Tag Assistant Plugin for Chrome by Google to make sure only one UA code is tracking when you’re logged out or viewing in incognito mode.)
