It's light and does what it says it does. Very good! Thanks for the documentation, I tried setting it up myself first and phew, I got far but couldn't have done it without the doc. With it it would have been a breeze from the start! I'm giving this 5 stars for the potential. Please read FolioVisions suggestions in his review on longer stats storage time. I have a tiny site at and currently it basically shows my latest posts. If I could even get most popular posts from a week or two it would be so much better. At this stage, it ain't really useful for me. But I trust in the potential, please do it! I'll be digging in the CSS and maybe more to enhance the outlook of the stats. It's a bit too plain! Maybe later you could add options to the plugin interface? I'd like some images atleast! Thanks a lot. I'd like to help, but I'm sadly no coder. Thanks for your hard work! (Edit: 12.11.17. No updates in a LONG time, plugin stopped working properly, no response to support ticket. Seems like the development has been stopped.)

We were not able to find any other plugin which would fetch the post hit counts from Google Analytics and store it in such way that it's easy to associated for each post. Couple of issue though: 1) Setup of Google API tokens misses any instructions, I had to use this guide to figure out how to set it up: 2) Setup of Google API tokens is fragile. No way of reseting it if something goes wrong, I had to remove the "analyticbridge_access_token" wp_option by hand. 3) Drop down menus associtad with picking of "Property View ID" don't reflect the actual property you select, but the value in the text field is correctly stored. 3) It was not working if there was some URL which couldn't be translated to a post ID, I had to fix that, as the plugin was generating invalid SQL insert in that case. 4) Only works with data from last 2 days, we would like last 31 months. 5) This plugin could be a powerful replacement of the Jetpack Stats module. We would like to create a bridge, so that Jetpack compatible themes can use the data from this plugin rather than having to use Jetpack. We would like to discuss these improvements with you!
