If you lose access to your Google Analytics account for any reason, Google may
require that you add a .txt file to your site's top-level domain (root of the
domain) in order to verify that you own it. However, it's currently not
possible to add this kind of file to your Wix site.

To resolve this issue, we recommend contacting Google and requesting an
alternative verification method, such as adding a dedicated meta tag.


You can try adding a meta tag with the following information to the page that
you set as the Default URL of your property in Google Analytics. Replace the
placeholder text with your email address, UA-ID, and the date.

account {INSERT YOUR UA-ID} with ?Manage Users and Edit? permissions - date
