My Tracking does not work, did I manage to do everything right?


I have just updated my page :
with a matomo tracker-id
The lines before the end of the looks like this:

 <!-- Matomo --> <script type="text/javascript"> var _paq = window._paq || []; /* tracker methods like "setCustomDimension" should be called before "trackPageView" */ _paq.push(['trackPageView']); _paq.push(['enableLinkTracking']); (function() { var u="//"; _paq.push(['setTrackerUrl', u+'matomo.php']); _paq.push(['setSiteId', '1']); var d=document, g=d.createElement('script'), s=d.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; g.type='text/javascript'; g.async=true; g.defer=true; g.src=u+'matomo.js'; s.parentNode.insertBefore(g,s); })(); </script> <!-- End Matomo Code --> <style type="text/css">#mapbox { height: 80vh !important; }</style> <style type="text/css">#birdmap { height: 75vh !important; }</style> <script src="[__assets__/sockjs-0.3.4.min.js](view-source:"></script> <script src="[__assets__/shiny-server-client.min.js](view-source:"></script> <script>preShinyInit({reconnect:true,disableProtocols:[]});</script> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="[__assets__/shiny-server.css](view-source:"/> </head>

After I inserted this i logged in to my matomo admin machine: and though I have visited the site
it still tells me the following

installation Guides

We provide step by step guides explaining how to embed the tracking code for some popular CMS and website builders: [WordPress]( | [Squarespace]( | [Wix]( | [SharePoint]( | [Joomla](

To setup Matomo on your system, you may need the following information:
Matomo URL: ``
Your site ID: `1`

I vist the site a couple of times and go back to my matomo admin site and nothing happens.
Am I missing something wher it comes to setting up the tracking-id ?

Best, i


It seems that it does not record my visits ( this is a swedish website for birdrecoveries)
this morning I saw a ‘US’ entry.
This is my Matomo Admin :

But I have not seen myself, logging in from 2 different machines - or my friends, asked 4 of them to login after 13:00 pm today ( 2020-04-06).
I can see traffic coming in , in the nginx-log, but no new records are displayed in the matomo admin ?

Best, i


When you check your browsers console, you can see the reason: You try to embed Matomo from here:

But doesn’t have a valid SSL certificate and therefore the browser refuses to connect there.

Thank you Lukas.
Fixed this now, it works.
