tracking own web visits
By , for WP 3.9

At first sight this looks a very good plugin and I am sure it does lots of useful things. However for, the one basic and most important thing is to avoid tracking my own visits.

I would have thought this was a pretty obvious need for most people but there seems nothing in FAQ or support documents that clearly tells you what to do.I have now spent hours of time trying to figure this out and have all but given up.

For that reason I cannot recommend this plugin to anyone else- especially a relative beginner such as myself.

Nice, really, but...
By , for WP 3.9

It is a nice plugin, and it does what it is supposed to do. There are just some -admittedly idiosyncratic for me- annoyances.
First the end user documentation. It could be better, not all of us admins are familiar with Google's intricacies.
And then there is the insistence of the plugin that I take a tour. I click it away some 2 or 3 times a day. I took the tour, and once is really enough.
Ah, and localization. That would be nice. (I'll send mine for Dutch after I've done it Joost).

Apart from that, it offers good functionality. Even one I haven't found elsewhere, the ability to exclude logged in users, above a specified level.

Works great, very happy

After Woocommerce split out their Google Analytics support, and after seeing it had not been updated in ages (and no longer works), I went looking for another option -- and Yoast came through. Very happy with this plugin, and all is working fine.

As powerful as you need it to be and simplifies the process for adding Google Analytics tracking for your website.

Always among the first plugins after a new WP installation
By , for WP 3.8.3

Along with Yoast's SEO this should be among the first tranche of plugins added to a new WP installation. Makes adding Google Analytics simple.
