Doesn't work, breaks your website, lacks support
By , for WP 3.5.1

Why is this the top result for plugin searches for "Google Analytics"? Because it's called google analytics.

This plugin seems nice and simple at first, all you have to do is enter your google analytics site ID. Because it is so simple you think it would just work. But it doesn't!

The code was never properly injected, instead it printed my google analytics ID in the header of wordpress. Deactived/Deleted the plugin and hoped it would undo the damage it did. It doesn't!

Head to the support forum and found a similar complaint, someone asking where this plugin injects its code (where we can manually go to fix the damage this plugin caused). Developer's response: "in the wp_head" area. I'm not a PHP master, which is why i use wordpress, so telling me it's in the wp_head area is telling me to waste hours of my day Google searching about wp_head and figuring out that wp_head can be declared almost anywhere! Awesome!

Thanks Kevin, your broken plugin defaced my website and I'll spend all day today trying to undo the damage.

We've used other, more complicated plugins and have found that sometimes, simpler is better.

If only the info got to google
By , for WP 3.4.2

I set Google Analytics plug-in up about nine months ago. Due to major surgery I've only just checked my Google Analytics account.

Nothing there just 0 0 0

Getting any assistanct from Google is - well its taken me all day and still I am trying, through the forum, to get some idea how to make this thing work. I know this plug-in is supposed to be great, and google offers good analytics, but I'm now looking for an alternative!!!!

Works Great!

So simple, so great! Thanks Kevin!

One recommendation... maybe add one simple radio option that allows user to choose where to add the tracking code (header or footer).

Love Simple

I installed this and checked the home page source and lo an behold the google analytics code had been added. Now I'm off to Analytics Account and make sure that Google has found it. I can only hope!
