Important: Please verify that the Get Link dialog states “Anyone on the internet with this link can view”.

Why does my Google Spreadsheet value still display as 0, even though I have put in the correct URL?
Your spreadsheet may not be set to share with “Anyone with the link”. If you are using multiple sheets, you will need to specify which sheet you want to publish by clicking the field that contains the text “Entire Document” and select the appropriate sheet. 

Also, be sure you are referencing the correct cell location in Visual Stats Bar’s settings.

Why is there an ellipses (...) cutting off my number or title?
