Understanding Analytics Parameters-
Deleting a website from a Google Analytics profile can be intimidating for beginners, especially when it comes to making critical measurements and being able to understand data in the long term. However, removing the wrong data can also compromise tracking your website visitors in the future, which is certainly something you want to avoid. If you do have worries, we recommend downloading your Google Analytics information so that you can always restore your historical data if ever matters need it.
Your Analytics Profile contains 3 different components. They are Account, Property, and View.
Account: You must have at least one Google Analytics account to access the report.
Property: A property can be your website or your mobile app and any number of other things that you might want to track in Google Analytics.
View: A view is an interface for your reports. For example, within a property, you can have different views whereby you’re viewing all or some of those properties’ data or statistics. For example, all data belonging to example.com, only specific subdomains like blog.example.com and/or AdWords traffic.
Analytics Profile has multiple accounts. Each account can have multiple properties and each property can have many views.
How many properties can I add to a Google Analytics account?
Each Google Analytics account can include up to 100 properties and each property can have up to 25 views.
Which One of These Should You Delete? A Property, An Account, or View
If you want to remove all of the data related to your website, you may remove the property.
If an account only has a property associated that you want to remove, you may simply choose to remove the property and the account together.
If you want to remove only a specific view, perhaps for specific Google Analytics users or for traffic from a specific subdomain, you may remove the view.
