No support for blocking bugs
By , for WP 3.9

I really liked this plugin until we found a big blocking bug: When customizing the google analytics code (in the before tracking initialization textbox), some HTML characters are introduced that make the javascript code crash.
We reported it on the forum. But there was no support on the forum in more than a week, so that we got back to manual, inserted the code in the header.php, deleted the plugin forever and that works perfectly.

Demographic and Interest data
By , for WP 3.8.1

Not getting any demographic and interest data. Can't upgrade to Universal Analytics to gain access to the data because the code can't be updated thru Analyticator (which makes the data next to useless).

This plugin might be handy for developers who want a quick way to charge their clients for "analytics." But anyone who knows anything about analytics won't be fooled. And if clients ever aspire to conversion tracking or anything more sophisticated than "bounce rate" they'll soon find out it's woefully inadequate.

Causing problems
By , for WP 3.7.1

This plugin has removed my widget area completely. I'm not sure how or why, but since I never really looked at my analytics from the dashboard anyways, it was a simple solution to just get rid of the plugin. Luckily someone figured out the solution before the problem effected me and it was an easy fix. But I can say I was more than a little disappointed when I went to my blog only to see a big notification of the front end saying "no widgets installed..."

Hope you can fix the bugs.

still problems with google CA
By , for WP 3.4.2

Is there any chance that the long-standing issue with the failed authentication with Google due to inability to fetch Google CA certificate will ever be fixed? It's a long time now that the problem persists. Other plugins have a "ignore SSL certificate errors" to check in order to call CURL with the proper ignore-peer-certificate switch. This issue is quite annoying.
Thanks

Update: Feb 20 2013: still no answer from the authors. it's almost a year now that this plugin is broken with the lack of support for ignoring SSL certificate errors, as explained above. I am sorry I have to agree with all the others users who state that this plugin is a PIECE OF JUNK. uninstalling from all my sites. goodbye
