Ghostery extension blocking Google Analytics

I fought for a long time trying to get Google Analytics set up. I tried using the Google Tag Assistant Chrome extension, which was very helpful. I wasn’t getting any errors, I was just not getting any hits, even when I would load the site myself. So I finally figured out what was happening by checking the console – my Ghostery extension was blocking the Google Analytics script from sending its data.

So if you’re having errors with your Analytics data, be sure to turn off any privacy Chrome extensions that may be blocking your scripts. Hope this helps save you some time!
