In RH2019, new ui, parse error when trying to configure Google Analytics with my RH project

I have added the following code to the header of the master page:

 

<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-000000000-0" ></script>
<script>
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
gtag('js', new Date());

gtag('config', 'UA-000000000-0');

</script>

 

where UA-000000000-0 is my Google Analytics Tracking ID.

 

And Robohelp is giving me a parse error for the first line of the script saying invalid character s and underlining the s of the src. I tried adding it this way 

 

<script src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-000000000-0" async ></script>

 

(as I found a website that seemed to suggest that you add the async at the end) but then got Invalid character > underlining the > next to async. 

 

I got this code from the Google Analytics website.

I think it's actually the async bit. Try changing to:  <script async="" src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-000000000-0" ></script>

Try adding a forward slash after the closing double quote marks. I had something similar with Google Fonts.

Thank you! It seems to be working, indeed. The error message is gone now. Do you know if the location of this script is correct (within the <head> section)?
