Registering a site with Google to Fix Errors: This site has not been registered and Target URL path prefix

First thing was that I was getting this error when I tried to use Google Analyticator for WordPress and tried to link it with my account get an error:

The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. Please contact the site that you were trying to use when you received this message to inform them of the error. A detailed error message follows:

The site “http://mycoolwebsite.com” has not been registered.”

I found this post and this post about the problem and needed to register the domain with my Google Account, in this case my Google Apps Google Account.

So I went to:

https://www.google.com/accounts/ManageDomains

Then 1. put in my site, mycoolwebsite.com and 2. clicked Add:

Then I clicked the “Manage mycoolwebsite.com” link and put in the “Target URL path prefix:” as http://mycoolsite.com

but the when I clicked in the link in WordPress for the Google Analyticator to Plug-In to login into google:

I got the error message:

“The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. Please contact the site that you were trying to use when you received this message to inform them of the error. A detailed error message follows:

AuthSub target path prefix does not match the provided “next”URL

I read this and this and found the problem was that the next variable had a leading www. by the Target URL path prefix from above did not, here is the URL from the request:

“https://www.google.com/accounts/AuthSubRequest?next=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mycoolwebsite.com%2Fwp-ad……”

You’ll notice the leading www. once this was added to the Target URL path prefix (described above):

I clicked on the link in WordPress for the Google Analyticator to Plug-In to login into google  this time everything worked great.

  1. Have there been any updates to this post. I am trying to use Mailchimps Analytics360 and keep getting the message: “The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. Please contact the site that you were trying to use when you received this message to inform them of the error. A detailed error message follows:

    The site “http://glitterrings.com” has not been registered.”

    I’ve followed your suggestions but I still get the same message. Any insights?

    I am experiencing an issue accessing RSS feed. Not sure why I’m unable to subscribe to it. Is there anybody getting an identical issue? Anyone who is aware of this please comment.

    I’ve been using this method to set up Analyticator on behalf of clients, but just hit a 20 domain limit. To make matters worse, it doesn’t appear possible to remove already-added domains. Has anyone else run into this yet?
