You're using Website Builder, not Sitebuilder Plus. These instructions do not apply to you.

On my Websites Manager page, it has no box for starting Google Analytics, and there is no heading that says Website Builder or Sitebuilder Plus. My site is still in Sitebuilder Plus - I haven't started building the new one in Websitebuilder yet. How do I start Google Analytics?

Hello,

It looked like the account was set up awhile ago and at one point you may have been using Sitebuilder desktop which is what it was reflecting and is why you didn't see that option. Since you did mention you are using Sitebuilder plus and I am able to see and confirm that, I went ahead and made a slight adjustment in your account. You are now able to see the get started button for google analytics. Let me know if you see it on your end.

I did what you said to do, but was not allowed access. "Missing permissions. You don't have access to the account. Contact an Analytics Administrator who has a Manage Users position." Wouldn't generate a tracking number. When I clicked on the link to Google instructions, I got the same message.

If you are see the missing permissions pop up it means you are logged into a google account that cannot be linked with google analytics (possibly a work one). Try logging out of whatever google account you are signed into or try using an incognito window (ctrl+shift+N) this should resolve that pop up and allow you to continue to generate a tracking code.
