Been going around in circles a bit - was paying for a google analytics through Square which gave me specific locations, even IP addresses of visitors. Didn't want to pay $75/yr so I cancelled it. Tried setting up google analytics by starting a google account and set up the properties as guided but it would not accept my GA numbers, said it had to be UA so I sent into the google account and found the option for UA. Customer service sent me this in response saying I didn't have to paste anything into the header, just paste the "UA" code. Works but not giving much info.
So, are some of you saying you paste into the header anyway and does that give you better results with the information?
Here is what customer service sent me:

section. You don't need to use the rest of the steps from that article since you won't need to use code for this process. Once this is added, tt may take up to 24 hours for site statistics to populate in Google Analytics.Please let us know if you have additional questions, we're available 24/7.
