How to recover Google Analytics account data
What would you do if one day you find that your Google Analytics account or website profile is no longer available or has been deleted. This happened to me ten days ago and I was like blank when I realized that the statistics (data) for my website is not available in my Google Analytics account. While adding another user (as admin) I mistakenly deleted one account/profile from the main user (admin).
I googled to find the possible solution to recover the data but what I found is that once an account is deleted it will not be recovered and if an account is deleted one can contact google for recovery the data. Until then, I wasn’t sure what I had deleted – a profile or an account. My worst fears came true and a chill ran down my spine when I realized I had deleted an account, not a profile. I posted my problem in several forums like hundreds of others to find a solution. And indeed I got a solution and recovered my deleted account statistics. Here’s how I recovered the account.
First, the main difference between a profile and an account (as most of us should know) is that a profile is created under an account. or an account can have one or many profiles. Once an account is deleted, all profiles in it are automatically deleted as well. Second, once an account is deleted, all administrators of that particular account will receive an email from the Google Analytics team informing about the account deletion, like the one below:
We want to alert you that the Google Analytics account abc.com has been deleted from asdf.aab.com. Please tell non-admin users of this account that the account has been deleted. Thank you for your cooperation.
Now the solution is:
If you are an AdWords customer, you can rest assured that your account will be restored in no time. What you need to do is log into your AdWords account and click on the Google Analytics email support options. (that’s what I had done)

However, keep in mind that for as long as the profile remains deleted, you will not see any data in the profiles.
