Red is typically a great color, but in software, service, and lightsabers, it's usually a warning. If you are seeing 'Not receiving data' in your Leadfeeder Tracker settings, something is wrong. Since Tracker is the most critical part of Leadfeeder, if you see red, you should try to fix it immediately!
How do I fix Tracker if my website says 'Not receiving data'?
The first things you will want to check are your traffic rules. The alert banner links to your Tracker settings and rules.
Make sure that the hostname listed is what you want to track! Pay special attention to the details (https://www.website.com is technically different than https://website.com). Sometimes this can pop up as a problem if your hostname or URL structure changes.

'But the page says 'Tracker Installed'?'
Yes, however, this status may not have updated yet. It's best to check and make sure. This article has some quick tips to help assure the Leadfeeder Tracker is on your site.
'Tracker isn't on the site! Why did you (Leadfeeder) take it off?!'
When you sign up with Leadfeeder, we ask that you install the Leadfeeder Tracker script. We ask you to install it because we have no access to your website's codebase. If we wanted to update or change the actual snippet that you place on the site, we couldn't. Controlling access to your website's code is vital for your site's security. You should never give access to your site's code to anyone that isn't a part of your organization. We don't ask for access to add the script for this reason.
'If you didn't take it off, why is it gone?'
In many organizations, multiple people can access the site to update, manage, and add tracking, among other things. If a team member wasn't aware that the Leadfeeder script is essential, it might have been removed as unfamiliar.
Another common situation is that the script got overwritten in an update to the site, either automated or manual. For example, you may have installed the Tracker directly into your website's header, but someone else who was updating the site didn't copy it into the new code.
In the situation of a 'disappearing' Tracker script, we advise discussing any recent updates or changes with your team. It may also be beneficial to review who has access to the code for the addition and removal of additional scripts.
While we can't tell you how the script was removed, we will do everything we can to get you set up again!
